It is the opinion of tho Nation, how- 
ever, that the stately and well-ordered 
tribunal to be presided over by Lord 
.Mersey, head of the British court of 
inquiry Into the disaster, will obtain 
a more accurate and coherent account 
uf the sinking of the Titanic, but at 
the sacriHce of some vital and essen- 
tial characteristics of the truth. 

The Saturday Review says tlio 
United States senatorial committee Is 
acting in defiance of all precedent and 
of international law, 'and without le- 
gard to decency in aggravating the 
sufferings of the British survivors of 
the Titanic. The paper denies tho 
committee's right to detain English- 
men as witnesses. Some of the terms 
it applies to Senator Smith, the chair- 
man of tiie Inve.stigating committee, 
are' "Blustering ignoramus" and "an Ig- bully." and it calls on th-c Brit-, 
hs/i government to protect its subjects. 
The Spectator thinks "the senate 
committee is not worthy the body 
from which it proceeds, and American 
ignity had belter have been consulted 
f the asking of useful and relevant 
(luo.stlons was lo have been ensured." 

The Outlook concedes that the 
prompt American imiuiry is a relief to 
slrulned nerves, but questions the le-i 
gality of the tribunal, which It terms 
a burlesiiue of "senatorial busybodies."

The witness was emphatic In his as- 
sertion that the position sent out by 
the Titanic was wrong. Ho said the 
ship was eight miles further eastward Us operators reported. This, he 
said, he proved by observations taken 
the llrst thing on the day following:. 
With what virtually was a fleet of 
steamers within a radius of, 50 miles 
of the Titanic, the officers said, this 
nil.stako In fixing accurately the posl* 
tion of the doomed ship was a fatal 
one. With floating Ice^ covering the 
northern sea a ship of even the size 
of the Titanic might well be overjook- 
ed through such a variance.

During the progress of the recipro- 
city campaign, prior to the last Doin- 
Inlon election, the Colonist time and 
again warned Its readers of the true 
motives which lay at the bottom of 
that notorious bargain. If any vindi- 
cation were .neoeaaary of th.e attltode 
which w« took at that time It, has bean 
forthcoming, in a somewtaMit ' rad# -.and 
.startling manner, during the past few 
days. On Thursday last President 
Taft, In the course of his oampalgn 
tour, attacked Mr. Roosevelt on account 
of the latter's change of front on the 
question of reciprocity. He quoted a 
letter from Mr. Roosevelt dated Jauii- 
a|y 12, 1911, in which he said:. 

"Paar Mr. President: It seems to 
nie that what you propose to do With 
Canada Is admirable from every stand- 
point. I firmjy believe In reciprocal 
trade with Canada for both economic 
and political reasons.: As you say, 
labor cost la Bubatantially th»..saiae-in- 
both countries, so that you are am- 
ply Justified by the platform. Whether 
Canada will accept sucli reciprocity, I 
ilon'l know, but It is gi-eatly to your 
< ledlt to make the effoin. It may 
ilaiimge the Republican party for a 
while, but It will surely benefit the 
party in the end, and especially if you 
tackle wool, cotton, etc.. as you pro- 

"Ever yours, 


Replying to thiH attack the following 
day, Mr. Roosevelt said: 

"Mr. Taft says that I changed front 
on the rDcipr.ocity measure. ThI.s is 
untrue. He publishes a letter of mine. 
ill answer to a letter of his marked 
'confldeiUlal.' incidentally, one of the 
unpardonable sins on the party of any 
niiin calling himself a gentleman i.s to 
publish confidential correspondence 
without permission; as to this 1 care 
nothing, hut 1 warn Mr, Taft in dle- 
cii.MHlng negotintlon."* with a foreign 
power It Ib well not to publiBh such 
exprenslon.-j as that In his letter about 
making Canada only nn adjunct of the 
United States." 

Here we have Mr. Uoosevelt aiiprov- 
Ing of wliat President Taft proposed 
"to do Willi Canada," and Intimating 
pretty pialnly that In the letter written 
by -Mr. Taft to him attklng for his ap- 
proval the latter pointed out ihut the 
object of rficlproclly was to make Can- 
ada "an ad.lunct" of the United Stales. 

We wonder wliat explanation Sir 
Wilfrid Uiurier has to make to the re- 
velations contained in this eorre.<<pond- 
fnco between the two most responsible

We are going to disclose some 
SMBTBtB. Possibly some of you may 
have aUspeotecl them, but now you will 
have them on aotbority. One is that 
newspaper men >r# npt omniscient Of 
infallible; neither do ifre .consider it 
Is our mlaaion to 'Mt ail tbe world 
right on ■ ev^ eonoflvaitie matter. 
Some i>«opie in»y tbJn* tb^..ob»ervi^» 
tlon quite unnecessary., btit they do tii|i;( 
Icnow what things newspaper meif •M'h 
asked and witat tiiey are ^peeted to 
do. Said an Indignant Victorian ^ tb¥' 
Colonist a day or two ago: ''Why don't 
you go for the Tramway Company?" 
When he was told that within two 
weeks there had been three editorial 
references to the cohtiMtny^s service, ba 
was not satisfied, and went on to 
apeak about barninir them up wad )uua^ 
raering them over the ropes and ttitogs 
like that. His particular grievance 
w*0 that a car was some four or five 
minutes lute. It was suggested to him 
that the columns of the Colonist were 
open to .any complaint he wished to 
make, provided he would take the re- 
sponsibility of making it, but he shied 
off in a minute. Is Central slow In 
answering or does' site put someone on 
the wrong number, the Colonist Is 
asked to roast tJhe whole concern. If 
we suggest that tho irate subscriber 
ahould complain to the management, be 
Wftnta to know what newspapers are 
for, any way. Does a reckless motor- 
ist speed by you and give you a fright, 
you want the newspaper to say some- 
thing about it, imt you want your name 
suppressed. When we. ask you wliy 
you do not report the case to tho 
pclice, you become Indignant and want 
to know If we think you are a common 
informer. Sometimes, possibly oftener 
than most people realize, ,^ newspaper 
men rnake mistakes. On some of these 
occasions they get letters usually be- 
ginning witlli the assertion that the 
writer is surprised at the amazing Ig- 
norance of the newspaper fr-llow. 
Wheroat We ere dnlV hurnlllfl ted, 

Anoihrr secret that we will disclose 
is that no one Is more painfully con- 
scious of his shortconilng.s than a 
no\vspap<>r man himself. Tlie trouble 
lie goes to In order that he may avoid 
mistakes would be a surprL'^c to .\ ou. 
If you knew about It. Something hap- 
pens and a dozen or more people wit- 
ness It. A reporter trie.i to get tho 
story. No two of the witnesses agree 
as to what took plsu'-e, and the reporter 
docs the best he can with conflicting 
statements. If he does not get it right, 
)i<- \< accused of all manner of sliort- 
roiiiinKH. Something happens at mid- 
night, and a reporter who ha.<i ibcen 
hord at work for twelve hours, perflmps, 
hfis to write out the story In a few 
minutes. The rexult Is a compdsltion 
that possibly Addison would not have 
thought tjullo up to the standard of 


many years to come. But here, as else- 
whcre^..>;|^ }awa of supply and demand 
are Itf^-itlMNltion, and if the absorb.nt 
powers of the British Investor are taxed 
beyond ,tbelr capacity Indigestion must 
inevitably foUow. Ip addition to this, 
so*nc of the "issues offered in London 
of late hare failed to come up to the 
standard deraanded by tho.^e who have 
been instrument&i in maintaining Can- 
ada's credit at its present high ibvel, 
and it waa felt that the time liad ar- 
rived to warn Canadian financiers of 
the danger of allowing propositions 
Which would hot bear the closest tn- 
vesitlgatlott to be seiit oV«>r here for 
diatrlbutlon amongst BriUsh investors.'

Aa a general rule, the travelling pub- 
lic pays slight attention to the meas- 
ures taken for its safety. It prefers 
to assume that the steamship company 
baa done everything to ensure the 
safety of passengers In case of ship- 
wreck, and that all regulations stipu- 
lated by law to safeguard life have 
been compiled with, llhe great ques- 
tion arises as to whether or not the 
steamship company deserve? the con- 
fidence thus reposed in it by the pub- 

Bulkheads greatly increase the sa/ety 
of a ship, but do not always- prevent 
sinking. Lifeboats of sufficient cap- 
acity should therefore, as alreody stat- 
ed, form the main auxiliary on wlilcHi 
dependence can be placed In cases of 
emergency. The maritime laws of all 
nations prescribe this, and yet it Is 
doubtful, in nine cftses out of ten, If 
tills provision is carried out by the 
owners of passenger ships. After care- 
ful consideration, the writer feels safe 
in saying that out of the great number 
of passengers carried by ships every 
year, not over two-thirds could be ac- 
commodated In the lifeboats and rafts. 

It Is beyond comprehension that 
warnings likf this should have been 
lgn(»red. We venture to believe that 
not one person In ten knew that

■riicre never was anythlngil approanli- 
Ing the activity in ttie building line 
now observable In Victoria. The 
operations are not carried on In any 
one line, but Include large and small 
business blocks and large and .«moll 
rpsirlenco!». Neither are they confined 
to ."iny p.Trt of tlie city or the ,Muburb». 

Xe\'erlhelews, the best information at 
our cotninaiid learls us to think that the 
pr^^sent activity wll) be exceeded by 
whnl will he wltnes.sed next year and 
In tlie years following. Wo look for a 
very gre»it Increase within a Miiort 
time In the number of lilgli-class sub- 
urban resl'lences. We also nntlelpate 
the speedy Influx of a great number 
of people who win purchase ."imall 
holdings to engage in fruit-growing or 
chicken farming. Many such persons 
have come here already, as those who 
have had occasion to drive along 'tSi's 

Th(^ very gratifying information 
comes from Wasiilngtoti to the tffect 
that the losses from flros In the 
United States last year did not exceed 
ir!0O.0OO. This greal reduction wn.s due 
chiefly to the fxcellent work of Urn 
patrols, although iii part to the greater 
care exercised In regard to setting flres. 
This is something in wlilch Csnadians 
might well emuiate their neighbors, 

.lohn T. Kelly' Is a 'comedian. Tie told 
his wlffc a funny story and she laughed 
80 hard over It that her heart weakened 
by recent Illness, could not stand the 
strain. Her husband went to the the- 
atre as usual, although he kntw hia 
wife was very weak, and In the course 
of the play, which, was a roaring force, 
word was brought to him that she was 
dying. He played his role to the end, 
beeausf he said he knew that. If she 
could speak, she would tell Mm to do

Among the passengers on the Tamba 
Maru from the Orient, was a Korean, 
Dr. Syngman Rhee, Ph. D.. a delegate 
from the Y. ilf. ,C. A. of the Hermit 
Kingdom to a Methodist convention at 
Minneapolis, who has had a romantic 
career. When a young man, wearing 
the white smock and high hat and top 
knot of the typical Korean of the time, 
he was Interested by the reformer, .3o 
Jal Peel — better known later as Dr. 
Philip .Talsohn — a Korean who was 
forced to fly for his life to the United 
States, wliere he became a doctor of 
medicine at John Hopkins university, 
and later returned to Korea as foreign 

The young Syngman Rhee. greatly 
wrought up by the murder of the 
Queen of Korea In the palace emeute of 
1894, became one of the leaders of the 
Indepcndenre club. The King, after the 
rising in which tlie Japanese were 
driven from Seoul In 1894, and which 
waa followed by the Chlno-Jnpanese 
war, after which Seoul became a hot- 
bed of intrigue In which Russlnns vied 
with .Inpanese, took refuge In tlie Rus- 
sian legation, Syngman Rhee was one 
of the prime movers in the Independ- 
ence part,v, and when In ISnS the Ped- 
lars' Guild massed its forces and the 
King was forced to demand the dl«- 
bandment of the Independence club, he 
was one of those who went to police 
headquarters, and, ^itli tho other lead- 
ers, he was aiTcsted and for seven 
years ]\q wa.«( held In ^prison In Seoul. 

"That prison In Seoul will be long 
remembered by me," he said. In recall- 
ing Ills experiences In a cabin on the 
Tamba Mam to a Colonist representa-

Had it not been for popular clamor, 
ho and the other Independents would 
liavc been put to death. Many thou- 
sands of men. acting on an old national 
custom, went to the front ol the palace 
and sat there in silence day and night, 
for fourteen days. This Is how the old- 
lime Korean in hi" impressive way, 
demonstrated his wrath. 'Jihe' Reac- 
tionists armed and drove away the 
waiting throng — but tho demonetratlon 
had Us effect, the Emperor promising 
reforms. The Independents were rc- 
IcBKed and the Empeior gave them 
audience, sitting on a platform In tb* 
street before the palace to hear their 

The Reactionists ware not quiescent 
though. They had prspsred a coup, and 
MS the indepe«»dents dispersed they were 
arrested and accused of endtavorillt l4 
start a republic. A mMttag ta 

int. the accuse^ attempted to deprive 
Qovernor-GenenU Terauchl of hU, Ufe 
on two occaalotts,. fit'st when the iOV 
crnor-generai wfts inepecUng the %»oai- 
Wi-ju railway line in December; tW« 
and again when he was to attend the 
opening gMMlMwny of the Yalu River 
bridge .)lf||pR»yeraber. In the latter 
case theiyr' tried to shoot the governor- 
general with revolvers at several sta- 
tions, but could not attain their object, 
as each station was too strictly guard- 
ed, and as they also were unable to dls-. 
tinguish the governor-general, who was 
wearing a khaki uniform similar to 
those worn by other officers in his 
party. . 

Conspirator. Used v^phax ^,„..., 
■ Their fellow conspirators are be- 
lieved to number about 500, but the 
authorities of the government-general 
confined the arrests to Baron Yin and 
some 160 others. " Most of these con- 
.splrators are members of the Presby- 
terian church, and tliey made prepara- 
tions for the conspiracy in the church 
or school toulldlngs of the mission. They 
took special care In the matter of 
communicating with each other, using 
a cipher ,^od^ln,j^niost eU instances, 

The prcseiipfMJiiS^pi^ originated at 
the time of^-'tmi annexation, the idea 
being to give proof of the spirit of 
the Koreans by assassinating the gov- 
ornor-gencral and other high Japanese 
officials, which deed, the conspirators 
hoped, would so impress the powets 
UitikjJ(^ii^;:. would be induced to make 
Koi^^mBtiati an independent country in 
case Japan should become involved in 
another war with any foreign powers. 

Editor a Principal 

Yan-Kui-talk, one of the conspirat- 
ors, was formerly editor of the Tai- 
Han Dally News, owned by Mr. Belhcd. 
Major Ryu-Tong-Yol is a graduate of 
the Japanese Military Academy, and 
was a favorite of General Hasegawa, 
but, being dissatisfied with the annex- 
ation, he fled to Shanghai. Governor- 
General Teraucht recalled him and gave 
him 20,000 yen to spend in reformatory 
work among Korean vagrants, which 
was placed under his care. He was 
nevertheless found to be one of the 
principals In the present cosnplracy. 

It Is stated that when Governor- 
General Torauchi granted an interview 
to a largo number of the Koreans at 
Chemulpo station last year, about 30 of 
the present cosnplrators were among 
those present, but they could not ac- 
pllsli their object.

English Inquirers— Yesterday's mail 
brought a large number of inquiries 
from England to the .of flee of the Van- 
couver Island Development League. A 
resident of Hornsea, Yorkali ire, asks aa 
to the educational advantages for 
young children here. The writer has 
had 20 years', expeiJence of railway 
engineering In India and also of busl- 
nes.s in England. Another man writes 
from South Lambeth. His youger son 
and wife wish to Come out, the former 
■ being a .stationer's assistant and the 
wife a dressmaker and milliner. He 
has hoard that there are lots of unem- 
ployed in B. C, and aska, "Are they all 
ne'er-do-weels or born tired?" A grad- 
uate of the School of Science of Tor- 
onto desires work ns a hydraulic en- 
gineer. He has worked on topograph- 
ical mapping for the government at Ot- 
tawa and also on the Sudbury-Sor> 
trunk road. Many other Inquiries come 
from Ontario. 

rorast Engineeriag — Science has in- 
vaded the field of timber cruising i11<b 
all other spheres of labor, with the re- 
sult that the old order of things is, dl«- 
(ippearing. Two advocates of the new 
cult of forest engineering reached the 
city yesterday in connection witli tUielr 
work on tlie Mainland coast .Hiid tlie 
West coast of Vancouver Island. They 
were Dr. .fudson K. Clark, well-known 
In the western country, and Mr. C. A. 
Lyford, lii.s partner In the firm of 
Clark, Lyford and Sterling. Philadel- 
phia. These men bring all their en- 
ginterlng knowledge to bear on the 
business of timber cruising, and malto 
their reports on the contents of vast 
areas as ai^curate as tlic return In any 
otlicr business. Mr. Dark may be re- 
garded as a pioneer in this new profes- 
sion, whicli combines cruising with the 
topographical work and thereby does 
kway with the old system of applying 
to engineers for maps aft*ir the crula-

Barnabas church, where a special ser- 
vice will be conducted by Rr>v. K. O.

of B. C, for the order 

The order of dress will be: Cimton

scope of Oddfellowshlp from the fact 
that for the cUjsing year the three

Books for Komemakers 

There was a time when public opin- 
ion conrlcnined the mistress of a house 
who splint her time In reading. A dirty 
liome, unkempt and untrained children, 
a neglected husband Were pronounced 
to be the consequences of such a way 
of spending time. 

It must be confessed llial iiuro uas 
often too much reason for such asper- 
sions. The young wife who brought 
front the boarding school a love f<»f 
novels, without any discrimination in 
,the choice Of her authors, wa» omly too 
'apt to forget her duties in her absorp- 
tion In unravelling the. plot of some 
sensational novel. Thrifty, InduslTlouH 
iiiHlrnnH pointed out lo their own 
ilauKhters tlie evils of such a course. 
Thf results were not always fortunate. 
Mhuv a young woman look fi-om lu-r 
liome a conviction that reading of any 
kind was Inconsistent with housewifely 
duties. While whole evenings might 
be pasaod In making fancy work, of 
wliich tile usefulness was very doubt- 
ful, tjiiiie spent in rending newspapors

.\11 lovers of rugby football who 
were lucky enough to be in the old

the best football that has been seen 
over there, especially In Kngland, for 
many years: and also mlgM™-^^yo

In B. C. rugby, eepeclally amongst the 
forwards, who will lose many a match 
througJi It If they have a. strict ref- 
eree. It Is very encouraging to those 
who have done «o mucli In the pattl 
to foster rugby football in this prov- 
ince to see the strides the game haa 
made both with players and the pub- 
lic who turn out to see the matches, 
especially in Victoria. The small local 
league that was started last season did 
2. ti'oniPTidnus amount of noud L<)--^he 
same, and It is to bi- hoped we shall 
see the .same sporting mutches next 

The great thing about these games 
i.s that it gives tUe younger players a 
chance to show wiiai lliey are worLU. 
Keenness is what is needed to ensure 
success, and no keciu;r lot of players 
ever liandled a football than tlie 
.Students, who headed the league. They 
thoroughly deserved their victories. 

Victoria ougiit to make a great ef- 
fort to gel back that cup from Van-

It, and it Is up to the younger playeru 
lo bring thU about. 

Rugby football, played. In the proper

When Victoria's flrsl spring horse 
sliow Js formally opened next Thursday 
evening by His Honor Lleut.-Governor 
Paterson there not only will be a faah- 
ionublf gathering of local society but 
un assemblage of horses of a quality 
never excelled in the northwest. 

It is possible to make this statement, 
without fear of a charife of exaggera- 
tion because of the definite announce- 
ment that practically all of the win- 
ners at Vancouver will be In attendance. 
Not only will the stables of the differ- 
ent cities of the northwest be repre- 
sented by their bt»t but tlie pt^alrie 
sportsmen urn conun>r in exceptional I 
force. The entries from Calgaiy are |

Victoria's stalwart veteran at the 
bflt. Like Baker, of last year's major 
league cliamplons, he has a reputation 
that makes opposing .slab arllfsta shiv- 
er when he appears at the plate. " "It 
it a twenty to one .shot I itiaKe a 'hU," 

he smilingly remarked while setting 
himself in a good slugging posture at 
.Seattle last week. The .Seattle P. I. 
puts the^ story of what iiappened dram- 
iitically. The pitcher worked him for 
two strikes. He worked the pitcher for 

Ihrce halls, and then— well, the crack 
that sent the ball .sailing still echoes 
In the ears of the fans. Above Catch- 
er Meek Is shown making the 
home run that was rung up In Victoria 
this season.

lost to Tacoma. 2 to 1. Gordon's infield 
rap could be called either a hit or an error, 
but from the fact tliat it came on Mathes' 
right side and he failed to spear it with 
his bare hand. It was credlterl, as a hit. 
This scratch hit and three errors by the

Pedar»on Za Oierer 

In the 115 lb, class Al^cvt Gerrard 
will be the Victoria representative 
against Paul Pe<lerson, of the V.A.C. , 
All followers of the game in B. C. are 
acquainted with I'ederson either 
through having seen him in action or 
through the medium of the press. -He 
is one of the several prides of the Van- 
couver club, and although Gerrard Is 
very clever, he will have to keep going 
to take the Judges' •eyes. The 14.5 lb. 
bout will bring Laidlaw, of the James 
Bay. club, against "Ked" Beeson, of 
New Westminster. This is another en- 
gagement in .which the islander will 
have to look to his laurels with special 

Oi" the others. Ui" I'rospect.i look 
bright for the .1. B. A. A. Thflro are 
three ia& lb. events, in which Victoria 
colors will be worn by Donald McKay, 
Hcott Cropper and Tommy Knockton, 
opposed respectively by Stanley Clem- 
ent, V. A. C; B. Talley, Youngstowii 
A. C, .Seattle, and T. Shand, Seattle 
A. C. It is believed tliat the local men 
should win each of these, although 
they will be given good battles. As 
In most other sports, the "dope" can- 
not always be relied upon, 

"Scotty" McKay goes against Bob 
Jackson, V. A. C, and should win. 
While in the 158 lb. class, one of the 
local favorites who did not figure in 
the last tournament, namely, K. Gal- 
ligher, will appear. His opponent will 
be Alexander, of the V. A. C. He is 
expected to meet with success. 

Other competitors are Albert Lee 
(colored). Cyclone Scott, H. Willis and 
C. Gordon (oolore<l). 

The officials follow: RefBroe ot box-

It was an exceptional i«ea>"m all 
round, both as regards the quality of 
the play and two alinost unique incir/- 
ents. These latter occurred irfte in the 
season, and caused a great deal of 
cnntrnversy in tlip. sportinir Dresa.. - 

The reason tor this discussion was 
the result of two "referees awarding 
penalty trie's. It 'Is doubtful if anyone 
here has ever seen this done during 
his football career. On eacJi occasion 
the full back, having stopped a for- 
ward rush, was tackled with the ball 
by the opposing forwards. None of his 
Bide were near him, so that if he put 
down the ball and played It immed- 
iately, as the rules say he It 
would have meant a certain try for hia 
opponents. Realizing this, he does not 
play the bail, neither doe.s he hold on 
to It. knowing It would raeafl a pen- 
alty kick against him. and he was too 
near his own goal line to risk that, so 
he does the only other thing left for 
nim to do — he throws the ball into 

The referee clearly saw that if that 
full back had played the game ac- 
cording to the rules a try woul-d most 
certainly have been scored. Therefore, 
he was quite correct In awarding a 
penalty try. No doubt both those full 
backs hnve learn. -d a .salutary lesson. 
The Karls(xnln Clab 

One of the outstanding features of 
the season was the wonderful form 
.shown by the Harlequin club in Lon- 
don. From October to the end of 
March, playing every Saturday, they 
only lost two matches: On neither of 
those two occasions had they their full 
team. They worked together like a 
machine, mid no such team has been 
seen since Harry Vassell's famous Ox- 
ford TTnlvcrslty XV. When It la re- 
membered that each one of their reg- 
ular three-quarters and also thoir 
scrum hiiif rppr>sfentefT England In one 
or all of the international matches. It 
is not to be wondered at that they were 
a hard team to beat. 

The policy in playing men in the in- 
ternationals who liad played together 
an<i knew eac,li other's game was never 
better Oemr.nstrnted then In last sea- 
son's matches when the Kngilsh selec- 
tion conimltt'ne picked tiio majority of 
the back division from the Harlequins. 
Vorni was. as Is often the case In foot- 
ball, completely upset. One can never 
tell what Is going to happen in a foot- 
ball match. Eng-land had the best 
team she hes had for many years, 
while Scotland has seldom had such a 
jioor one* Yet Scotland beata Ji^ngland; 
jWeles, n'rter^eing beaten* by England, 
llefeuts the Scottish ^ft'diy; whilst Ire- 
land gets a very bad heating from Eng- 
land and then walks over Scotland! So 
much for form at rugby football. It 
must be admitted that In the England 
v«. Scotland game the referee was far 
too lenient with the Scottish forwards, 
Svho played a ffeat deal off-side, and 
JihiB factbr alone was enough to ac- 
count for KnRland's downfall.

CHICAaO,. April a?.— Jack Johnson, 
heavy w«|j?ht champion, announces thiat 
he will rt'tirc from the prize ring on 
Labor »ay. If any fighters want his 
game they will have to box hlin before 
this date, as Jack said all the money in 
the world would not induce him to 
change his plan.s. 

"If any T)f the 'hopes' want to meet 
me they will have to get ready in a 
hurry," said Johnson. "I am willing 
to take on all of them and all the time 
I want bct'Veen bout.s is one week, I 
realize 1 am getting old, and I do nof 
want to go the route of other cham- 
pions. I can beat all the Palzers, Mor- 
rises, Flynns, Wells nnd Smiths in the 
game, and as there Is no one able to 
give me a Imttle. I may just as well 
retire with the title before I get too old 
to defend it successfully. 

"1 iiiado up my mind to quit about a

league teams -■ ' ''le only ;<w«e .in 

which the sanv ' • play on for an- 
other week being that of Seattle and 
Victoria, who continue at the Sound city 
until May 5. Tacoma goes to Spokane 
for seven days while Portland will be 
Vancouver's opponents at the Terminal 
city for six days. For Sunday, May 5 
the two teams will play at Tacoma. 

The league standing still presents 
the gratifying but odd spectacle of the 
two talleuders of Isust sca.-Jon, Ylctorln 
and Portland, at the top. As a matter 
of fact, however, the race so far is so 
close that it is impossible to pick the 
winner. That the struggle will be keen- 
er and more Interesting tlian that of 
1012 already Is conclusively evident. 

On May 2 the Chinook hall team made 
up from Intllans from the Chetiiawa In- 
dian school of Oregon, will pUy lue 
Moose lodge team hero at the Royal 
Athletic grounds. The tour Is being 
managed by .Tames M. Miller, physical 
(llrei-'tnr of the school. 

Walt. Gravelln and K Molr. Ijoth 
of whom were with the Beacon Hills 
la-iit season, are trying out with the .Ab- 
erdeen, Wn., squad. They report that 
there are about thirty eandldates for 
positions, but they feel reasonably sure 
of making good. Gravelln Is handicap- 
ped because the team's manager is a 
second baseman, the position he used to 
occupy. He is in the field and Is doing 
well at bat. Eddie Householder, for- 
merly manager of Victoria's pro. team, 
is with the bunch. 

"Bobble." Steele, who went to try out 
for th.e Washington Stste lesgne has re- 
turned. He says that strikes among the 
miners In the Interior have made con- 
ditions ."(o unsettled that he did not care 
lo continue. He thought of making a 
slab for pitcher's job wltli Walla Walla. 
In the May American .Magazine. Hugh 
S. l''iillerton writes an article full of In- 
teresting stories of freak plays that hav" 
x^'on great baseball games. Followlns is 
one of the most rfinarkable stories; 

"Among the almormal Incidents that 
figured In the early history of tlie na- 
tional game, perhaps none l.s so well 
known to old-timers as the one which 
happened to Cliff Carroll on the St. 
1,ouIb grounds, when he was a member 
ot the famotw Browns. Perhaps you 
have wondered why baseball players 
hove plain shirt fronts, and why so few 
players have breast pockets. Cliff Car- 
roll Is the reason. He was running for- 
ward to take a base hit on the flrsl 
bound. The ball boimced crooked and 
hit him on the chest. He grabbed at 
the ball hastily «nd, as he clutched It. 
he shoved It down Into the handkerchief 
pocket on his shirt front. The rupner 
saw Carroll tugging and stralnlnt to 
tear the ball out of his pocket, and in- 
stead of stopping at first he sprinted 
onto second, while Carrol, nttll trying 
to dislodce the ball, ran to second, The

M:\V YORK, April 27. — Hush D. 
Mcintosh, the Australian boxing pro- 
moter, has decided to devote all his at- 
tention next year to lightweights and 
!-iiddls wei "h ts -and "'ive the iieav- 
welghls a rest. Mcintosh denies the 
rUmor that he is to invade New York. 
In a recent Interview the promoter 
had the following to say: 

"It was rather amusing to me to 
learn by cable that I was to hold a big 
lightweight tournament in New York. 
I presume someone become mixed in 
his signals. What I do Intend holding 
Is a big tournament in Australia for 
lightweights, and I want to get the 
leading men of your country to enter 
if possible. They may not come, or 
expect to come, with the Idea that 
flioney grows on the streets in Syd- 
ney. I am willing to pay them w'ell 
for their trouble and offer reasonable 
guarantees, but I do not propose to be 
held Up for everything in sight tlie 
same as your American promoters have 
been. Judging from newspaper reports 
received here. I would Hke to get 
Wolgast along with Packy McFarland, 
Battling Nelson, Freddy Welsh, Mat

If Flanagan "Withdraws Prize Bayley 
and Allen "Will Fight For Some- 
thing aa Good 

CALGARY, April 27. — Everybody is 
talking about the championship box- 
ing contest at liassano on Juno 29. 
lOvcrythlng indicates the largest 
crowd that ever attended an event of 
this kind in Alberta, and the manage- 
ment will make preparations for tjsav- 
eral thousand fans. It will be a big 
colebratlnn day at Bassano, and Hj 
double bender In baseball will take 
place during the morning and after- 

No -^v-ord has yet been received from 
Toronto in regard to the Flanagan 
belt. It Is generally thought that the 
Sporting club will grant Allen per- 
mission to box for the belt, nut al- 
ready there is a belt waiting to be 
preaenled to the contestants if the 
club should refuse. 

Some people wonder why Allen re- 
fuses to meet Billy Lauder in Winni- 
peg. A couple of years ago when they 
met there to box fur the championship 
It was a ciuestlon of weight. Allen 
refused to enter the ring because 
liauder weighed a little over the light- 
weight limit «l the ringside. He caJls 
for 133 pounds ringside, nna the boxer 
who goes into the ring with him for 
the title must nut weigh an ounce 
over that Hgure. 

The oonsbant wrangling of flghters 
,-.ver the weight question, of malting 
afternoon or ringside poundage, has 
led to so much discussion among the 
light fans thai (something should be 
done to establish a national and In- 
tornfitlonal scale in «H olasses. 

Close followers of flstiana think 
boxers should be compelled to tneke 
ringside weight. This la required bf 
the new boxln* commission. Adber- 
ents of this argument regard It •« 
injustico to allow a fighter to weifH^lR 
six or seven hours before lid' '^ttwrli 
the ring, thus giving htei time to take 
on extra pound* and T«gaiii any 
strength he may h&ve loat in making 
a weight for whlcli-1i« ahoold rtoi -try. 
A fighter who pretenda to be • Hifhft-

of horses, rifles, «^tc., were captured. 

'U'^hcn the Lonsdale called at Maxatlan 
on the south those on board state the 
port was quiet, although there were 
many rt^^orts of disturbances In the 
interior, AVWen the Steamer reached 
Sallna Cruz, however, news/ Iftagijpijpn- 
cd tiierc that soon after the':^ffliliiiiiltire 
of the Tjon.<<dale Mazatlan was bombard- 
v ed. The bombardment arose out of a 
di.spute between thf leader of the local 
forces and the government ofncials. 
Soon after the quarrel hpsran guns were 
brought out and the city was shelled. 

Forelgntr.'i were leaving the southern 
])art of Mexican particularly the United 
States citizens, who have been greatly 
alarmed by the threats that If there 
was any intervention frtorh the United 
States, a ma.ssacre of "Gringos" would 
follow. News was learned ,ii .<jilina 
Cruz of an heroic fight pur n|i i-y a 
party of five Americans at a hacienda 
near San Bias, which tht-y held for sev- 
eral days, an<l then, finding thei.r am- 
munition running low, they escaped 
with eight women and children In the 
night, and made their way bj^' walking 
and in canoes, after suffering many 
hardsHhlp.s, to MnzJitlan. 

Threats Against Foreigners 
Comment of the Mexican newspapers 
following the note sent from Washing- 
ton to Mexico several weeks ago Is in- 
flaming the people against the. United 
States citizens. La Prensa says that 
"No one asked the Americans to come 
and live in Mexico and If they arc dis- 
satisfied with the conditions they should 
Itave the country." Kl Tiempo says: 

"If any Americans have been taken 
prisoners by the rebels, if they have 
been executed the fault is theirs. "Why 
d!,-l thfy enlist in the ranks of the de- 
fenders of the government? The require- 
ment that the lives and properties of 
Americans in Mexico shall be protect- 
ed in an adfquntc and just manner is 
superfluous, because the government 
and the people do tills and they have 
never committed excesses tither against 
the lives or property of Americans in 
Mt.xico. Tl.oy take the jwsltlon that 
excesses committed by Orozco cannot be 
claimed as acts for which either the 
government or the .Mexican peofle are 
responstbu. They say Ihat the threat 
of the I-'nltcd .States l.« very plain and 
that the Mexican people repel the same 
with all energy, and that when the 
nt.od arises every Mexican will rise up 
lo protect his country." 

Conditions wore gradually becoming 
worse, and those or. board the I..on8da1e 
are of opinion that ther« will b» some 
strenuous tlmsa when the steamer again

J. H. "Welaford InterHaw Begarding Suit 

Brought Against Hlni for Final 

Payment for Union Steamers 

Mr. .T. II. Wolsford, head of the well- 
known Welsford lines, who has been 
sued for the final payment of the pur- 
chase price for the Union Steamship 
compan.v, says that the completion of 
the purchase is not affected by the 
pending suit which is for accounting. He 
.said: "The Union and Boscowltz com- 
panies and tlie services operated by 
them will be continued in the ef- 
ficient and practical manner that it is 
possible for diligence, efficiency and the 
be-st regard for the interests of the 
whole community using these services 
to devise. There are many ways in 
which, in our opinion, these services 
can be improved, and the full thotight "f 
the management will be concentrated 
upon such matters. 

"The point involved in the action re- 
ferred to," he observed, "was merely 
one of accounts between the individual 
parties and in no wise affected the dis- 
position of the companies, and was real-

practical business manner, a lawsuit 
thould have been unnecessary. Explan-

pending this explanation, a certified 5 
cheque for the full amount was paid,

a pre-hlstorlr method of dealing with 
such a matter."

The Opportunities You Missed 

A Few Years Ago, Are Now 

Afailable In Nanaimo 

The time to buy cheap lots in any town is at the beginning of , 
things. There is big money to be made from early investment. 

NANAIMO, B. C. ha3 never been boomed— it is a city of re- 
sources, with a substantial pay roll. Plans are under way at thfJ 
present time to double the output of coal— this will mean employ- 
ment to a great many more men. We predict that its population 
will easily double in the next four years. 

The further developments of coal will alone be sufficient to 
make this increase— to say nothing of timber, fishing and agricul- 
ture. We are selling one of the finest subdivisions adjacent to the 

CARDIFF HEIGHTS is a little more than a mile from the 
business centre. It adjoins the Athletic grounds— most of the lots 
are cleared and all are desirable for building purposes. No lot is 
less than 42x123 feet. 

Price $250 Each 

$25 Cash, and $10 per Month 

This price is lower than that at which lots are selling for in the 
proposed townsites of the interior. There is no comparison as to 
value and future possibilities. 

We expect to clear out this entire sdbdivision shortly. Now 
is the time — don't wait until values have advanced and then talk 
about "what you could have done"— DO IT NOW.

It la well known that fruit growirs 
the Interior have not been conuHl- 
e successfully With Imported fruits 
in the markets of the coast towns, and 
to help them In this direction the rate 
on apples and pears. In carloads, la 
now reduced from 45 cents to 40 cents 
in the fifth olaes^ That on peaches 
and other soft fruits in carloads is re- 
duced from 53 cents to 48 cents in the 
ilijrd class, and apples and pears in 
Jess than carloads In nue same class 
will be charged at 48 cents instead of 
■stents. These reductions to point.? 
Mlthe coast arc expected to prove of 
„.'eat value in stimulating and increas- 
ing the e.xport to Australia, and pror 
bably tp China and .Tapan. As the sea-

Xiie general effect of these reduc- 
tions on rates to the eastward will be 
to lessen the charges to most of tho 
-Mberta points and to some in Saskat- 
chewan, where most of the produce of 
this province is marketed, and this will 
;-n:atly as.sist the fruit growers of B. 
C. In their struggle against American 
competition. A stimulus will also be 
given to the production of garden stuff,

Referring to the development wbrk 
on '^plands" yesterday, Mr.^ D. M. 
Rogers, president of "Uplands Limited," 
said that the lujprovementB ■Were being 
carried out as rapidly as possible and 
that lots were ready now for the com- 
mencement of building operations. Judg- 
ing from the inquiries the company had 
,y«dt '"Uplands" would have resl- 
^___^X all, parts of the country, a 
_„^^'llKi«en8. in general, that Avouid 
add much to the life of Victoria. It is 
likely that some of the spleijdld homes 
will be erected very shortly as a num- 
ber of Intending purchasers liave for 
some time only been waiting- for the 
opening of the property for sale. 
• The purpose of "Uplands" will be to 
appeal to the resident who values his 
home to the extent of demanding beau- 
tiful surroundings, charming scenery.' 
modern improvements and freedom from 
the encroachment of commerce. The 
district will be governed by certain 
stipulations and restrictions calculated 
to insure Its permenence as a residen- 
tial area. No apartment houses will be 
allowed to come in, nor hotels nor com- 
mercial buildings or a.> description. 
Furthermore, only one 'houhO will be 
permitted on a lot and no lot may be 
further subdivided. The requirements as 
to the class of houses are reached in 
the stipulation that at least J5000 must 
be spent in the building of a home. The 
larger lots are provided for In the re- 
quirement of an expenditure on house 

and grounds of a sum equal to' u.t least 
half of the purchase price of the lot. 

"Uplands," when the improvement 
work Is tinaliy comi-letod, will be one 
of the show places of Victoria. The 
atieet cars, reaching the. property from 
the heart of Victoria In tw^-ntv-hve 
mlniit.-«, will enter "Uplands" along 
lb.- feature avenue. Midland Way, which 
traverses tho district approximately in 
the middle and extends to 0. beautiful

a uerij licavi] ex pc iidii are , its pitrpo^e is to atlrdcl residents to whom the 
possession of a home thcd is a home in evenj sense of the term, n)itt ap- 
peal vigoronsli). The propertij, in its primarij state, snggested this pur- 
pose. The ot)jeet, then, n)as to provide modern eonvenienres in such a 
manner as to preserve the naturid charm. To this end Mr. John (I. Otm- 
sted, of Olmsted Bros., Brooktine, Mass., a master in his profession of 
landscape architect, uuis placed in charge. ]Vith him it became a u)orU 
of love, for he a)as enffircdted hij tJie material Xature had given him. 
He evolved a j)lan th(d st(Uids as a worthg example of his abilHj}; and, 
hij tins pl(U},'^Vpl(mds^' has been laid out. 

As An Investment 

"Uplands" is the safest investment available, if the material side is to be considered. 
Opening prices will not prevail for long. Inquiries have been coming in from many 
places for months past, sent by people who were attracted by the idea of "Uplands," and 
who will be among the first to buy when the plan is opened on Wednesday next. The 
com.paratively sm.ali number of lots is alsaaa assurance that the property wiU be at a 
premium in a short time. , . ' ., 

But it is an investment in enjoynietit, coaifort atid happiness that "U|)laiids**~ttialEes 
its strongest appeal. It will be governed by_ reasonable, absolute restrictions ensuring 
for all time, its high character. No apartment houses, hotels or* other commercial build- 
ings will be admitted; no home may cost less than $5,000 and, for the rest, a sum equal 
to at least half of the purchase price of a lot must be expended on house and grounds. 
Only one house may be built on a lot and no lot may be further subdivided. 

The plan of "Uplands" is arranged with the idea of protecting the vieT^.fFiim every 
lot so that it cannot be cut off. Practically every lot commands a view of the sea. Av- 
enues, streets and drives are extra wide and :w^ith the exception of a very few short ones, 
all are gracefully Curved. At main avenue lhtiit«»tiohS, provision is made for parked 
spaces. Larger parks will be laid out at the beaches. Two beautiful bathing beaches, 
one on Loon Bay and one on Oak Bay, will bs prepared for the use of "Uplands" resi- 
dents in general. The Royal Victoria Yacht Club v/ill have its site near Flamborough 
Head, "Uplands" and will build a palatial clab house. The feature thoroughfare of "Up- 
lands" will be Midland Way, a model avenui. It will run approximately through the . , -, 
middle of the property to Midland Circle. It will ba 150 feet wide, divided in the centre by a boulevarded park strip, on either side of which will be an asptialted roadway bordered by 

and greensward. 

The street cars will traverse "Uplands", along Midland Way, making the trip to the heart of Victoria in less than twenty-five minutes. 

The improvements on "Uplands,*^lfow W«ffS^'h'#$ femprise asphalt pavement on all thoroughfares, cement sidewalks, ornamental street lamps at intervals, boulevards, trees and shrubs, parks and 

a cement sidewalk 

arbors, all telephone and lighting wires underground, sewerage and water systems complete, and street car connection with Victoria.

■ As the accompanyinp: illustrations show, 
there arc many delightful homes in Victoria 
which any one intending to build will do well 
11. study before deciding on the type of his 
own, and in this sunny weather it adds a new 
pleasure lo walks in and around the city in 
search for houses wdiich are worthy of being 
noted and kept in mind. A man builds for 
limself, and it is better that he uses his own 
judgment and builds to his own ideas than 
that he puts himself blindly into some one 
else's hands: the house will then have the 
uwner's stamp on it and a critical taste will be 
engendered which, even if faulty, is a long way 
better than blind acceptance of the "ready 

The proportions of the main buildings il- 
lustrated today in the first two pictures are 
excellent, and. indeed, this sense of propor- 
tion is one of the most salient points of Can- 
adian architecture and strikes the visitor from 
the moment he lands' in Quebec. No doubt 
the noble models of old French chateaus of 
the very best period of French architecture ex- 
erted a lasting influence, but right across the 
continent, especially in the public buildings, 
can be observed proofs of the ability to con- 
ceive great masses of stonework with a central 
idea dominating the whole and to which all 
the details are subordinated, which has been 
lacking among English architects since Wren's 

time. . i 

Reverting to the question of materiails, the 
more the union of timber and granite is studied 
the firmer does the conviction gh>w t1i«t tilt 
combination is not a happy one, and should 
be avoided wherever possible. Cottipttc th« 
glaring effect oi the gnmti^ iri|j[tr« i| 0|S of 

these photographs with that of the brick chim- 
neys above. Granite is a material to build a 
castle, or a massive house all of stone, some- 
thing stately, and warranted to resist wear 
and weather for centuries. In any but a Lon- 
don Climate it retains its color and does not 
"weather," and in this fact lies one reason for 
not placing it in juxtaposition with wood, or 
any other material that takes on warm and. 
more picturesque tints the longer it stands. 
Bricks "weather," and if well made become the 
more beautiful for age. and the smaller pat- 
tern of the "mortaring" between them docs not 
distract the eye from the detail of the rest of 
the timber building. It is said that the quality 
of the local brick is responsible fof its not be- 
ing used, but it is also said that red brick was 
once made here, and if so, it can be produced 
again and will be when the public insists on 
getting it. A thing not so apparent in a pho-* 
tograph is the appearance of shabbiness which 
stone gives to timber when close to it: paint- 
ing once a year does not remove this. Tim- 
ber and stucco, timber and roughcast, are both 
excellent combinations, and it seems a pity to 
attempt to go beyond these in houses of the 
bungalow type. 

In this sunny weather it may be as well to 
remember that the home must be built to lift 
in during several months of winter #«•! 
and overcast skies, and that then a n^m 
shaded by loggia or verandah will bt kt 
and more pleasant to live in tfa>a j Whi^life j

©f S®m 


A reader of llic Colonist very kindly liand- 
v.l to the editor u copy of the Strand Maga- 
zine of April, 1904. which contains tlie foliow- 
uiK article entitled, "PattU--- with Bcri^s. " by 
P. T. McGrath : 

The worst danger that menaces Tran.s- 
Atlantic travellers nowadays is that of a col- 
h.sion with ^n iceberg in a fog. It i.s 
morally certain that the mysterious disap- 
l)carance of big steamships like the Naronic 
and iluronian in recent years is attributable 
to this cause, for no other agency is powerful 
enough to work the ruin of a modern liner, 
with her cellular bottom and watertight bulk- 
heads. One of these mighty structures can 
defy the most furious storms, so varied arc 
the safeguards she possesses to withstand ihc 
buffeting ot wind or wave; while fire, the 
most deadlj' peril in the bygoiw times of 
wooden hlil|i,i«> no lottger dread«d» for Jt is 
easily confined within one steel compartment. 
Even collision with another ship is not a grie' 
YOU« peril, because rarely is^either d the com- 
batants so sorely wounded a^ to be unable to 
limp into port. It takes some Titanic influ- 
ence to overwhelm one of these floating fort- 
resses, usually the overturning of an iceberg 
through the impact of collision. 

The corrosive action of salt water on the 
submerged mass, with the play of the sun on 
the exposed portion, often produces such a 
delicately balanced berg that the touch of a 
man's hand will upset it. Often Newfound- 
land fishermen, cutting fragments from bergs 

to packfpund their bait or fish, are destroyed 
by the huge hummocks rolling ri^ht over, 
sending men and boats to bottom in a minia- 
tiire maclstrpm. Imagine, then, the result 

feet liigii. .\s a berg shows only one-eighth 
f)f it> liiillc nbovp the surfacp, their dt'nlh can 
be imagined. The surveying ship (joldfinch 
had to cpiit work on the Grand Uanks in .Au- 
gust, if^3. owing to the score of berg.s thnt 
infested that area, and several of the Mont- 
real liners, ])lying via Ikdle Isle Strait, had 
their bows stove in !)y colliding with pin- 
nacled masses or stunted ones. luirlier in 
the year the ocean steamships rtinning to and 
from New York had to deflect from their reg- 
ular voute l,>ecause the Kaiser Wilhelm al- 
most impaled herself on one, and in June and 
Jidy, the most dangerous months of the year, 
for them, as the current moves s*;;iilh more 
rapidly, the steamers touching ovcry port 
from St. lohn'b to Baltimore ut.u reporting 
the presence in thc^ M^t^ S^itMSS^mM- 

5Ww'i»»!rllie'-toion as NovemJ^;*^

the fa8t«st siiip a£lofkt« drove agam»t k coIo«** 
sal ice-rampa^ on the G*9ii4^ BanlM while, 
proceeding to l^iverpool from l^ew York with 
five hundred aqd iiHy peraons aboard. The 
collision completely battered in her bows,, de^ 
stroying them in a matttt^f o«ly posaibJe to be 
understood by referring to the photograph, 
and crumpling up stoitt steel beams like so 
many pieces of straw. The impact made her 
forcoart such a shell of strained plates and 
p.irders that she was barely kept afK^at until 
she reached St. John's the pumps being mann- 
ed the whole time and all on board fearing 

■i >■ 

thkt ^Hih monieni she would sink lieimjUi 
the waves. After her arrival there s?me two 
hundrcU tons of ici: were taken out of her 
forepeak, the result^ of her conflict wit h her 
silenrbut laeadly enemy." 1tepatfsT6~ertabtr 
her to return to New York octupied three 
months, as she had to have wooden bows put 
in, and this was a tedious and costly Job in a 
port like St John's* 

The next year the Friittdv fishing barque 
Montcalm, with a creW of fllty-eight men, 

struck a berg off Cape Race, and received 
.smli injuries that «he i&vM within a lew min- 
utes, carrying down her whole shij)'s coin- 
[lany except six men. The Xcwfoundlan<l 
fishing schooner Trefoil was destroyed in the 
same way a few years later, and out of twenty 
four souls only two escaped. .Many other 
sailing craft have undoubtedly been lost with 
all hands from a like cause, leaving no trace 
(jf tl)eir fate. American fishing schooners 
which arc navigated with a recklessness no 
others attempt, are particularly susceptible to 
sucii disasters, and how many of them have 
been sent to bottom by ramming bergs will 
proljably never be known. The number can 
only be conjectured by the total of l"- »• 
which come into collision with t])e iccn.

tale to tell or ft nmnig^i horror when a rude- 
ly huijlt fishing snuick went to pieces against 
a towering glassy «rag. 

In iBt/» the s earner Knight Bachelor, in 
Crossing the Grand Banks in a fc^, fouled a 
berg and lore away her bows so as to leave 
her a t'omplete wreck forward. Luckily for 
her, how«*\er, she was movingj half speed only 
and therefore did not strike it with full force, 
else she would have crumpled up and col« 
lap-^ed like an egg shell. Even at her low 
speed she sustained so severe a v ound that 
her escape was little .short of a ml.acle, an«l 

S'he was viewed by thousands after she had 
rttade her way into port. 

The Ccncordia is another, iiUtsifation of 
th e d a m ft^g-Cattsed by an icebey g acci dent. 

no worse injury than a bow iciii asunder to 
the foremost bulkhead. 

The .Anchoria some years ago struck a 
(liece of ice with her screw in .April and broke 
her shaft, being then two lutndrcd miles off 
St. John's. The ship was full of passengers, 
and with the winter gales raging over that 
area, her ])!ight was desperate. A boat's crew 
volunteered to row for St. John's to get hel]). 
and did so in the teeth of tiie storms, but she 
was picked up by another steamer and towed 
along in her wake reaching there without fur- 
thcrmishap, though her passengers were al- 
most crazed with the panic, as the two ships 
were enme.'ihed in the floes for a long time, 
and in danger of being "nipped" by the con- 
tending sheets. The Gascogne, a French 

'liner, had a similaf ^ipprJence in April, 1898. 
coming to anchor -on the Bank^s amid Ui«l 

^ floes and bergs, and being caught there tintil . 
the piling, raftine masses, rose to the height 
of her rail and threatened to overwhelm her 
and all on board. She had a total personnel 
of over four hundred, and, there betug many 
women, their terror was extreme, the whole 
situation proving to be one which nobody on 
board ever desired a repetition ot. 

Nothing could be more appalling than the 
conditions created aboard an ocean stearner 
filled with passengers when she strikes an ice 
berg. She is a floating pandemonium, the 
the terror of all accentuated by the fact that 
there is usually nothing^ else in sight to take 
them off if the disaster is of the wOr»t. 

I n May, 1 8 99, the — s t e om e r — Gr a nd U a k s, 

carried away, and her -ti m punctured from 
deck to keel, ripping her oi>cn well below th<' 
water isne. About one himdred ions of itc 
tumbled on board her, and it was feared at 
first she would sink. The crash of the onset 
and the thunder of the ice on deck stampedcil 
the passengers, and they rushed wildly to the 
deck ; but di.scipline was soon restored, as it 
was found the ship could still swim so as to 
make her way to port, which she eventually 
did after some delay. 

A month later the Jlata.->u, a Montreal 
liner, hit a berg off Cape Race. She ran 
among a regular fleet of them, it being dense 
fog at the time, and in steering to avoid one 
she rammed another. But she was under 
small headway, and only stove in her .^tem

It was in a ca»e like this, in i8(Si, that the 
steamer Isabel, off Cape Race, too, met tiNt 
accident which sent , her to her ,end With 
twenty-six souls, only one survivor scramb> 
ling on to the berg and being rescued from 
there a few hours later by a fishing boat- The 
Isabel in a fog sighted a berg, and altering 
her helm to pass it by drove against a sub- 
merged spur of the flinty crystal, which scor- 
ed her bottom with a great gash from stem to 
stem, causing her to turn turtle and go down 
with all hands byt this man, who clung to a 
grating, and the nr e made his way up the fiteep 

when a powerful ocean steamer, impelled at 
the rate of eighteen or twenty knots an hour, 
hurls her vast bulk against a rampart of ice 
which suddenly shows itself through the fog 
right across the route she mast go! It is i<^ 
late to stop her, no cl^ftitgc Of h^Tm will bring 
her clear; those on bOart« cftii only pray that 
the berg will stand firm against the shock. 
It so, she may escape With a hm%t»ffA"^^fi(^l 
but if the berg upsets it is eiasy to' 'uaw^ . 
.-tand the appalling conseqaences ol a rhass

a ship or smashing in her tinderbody as it

Icebergs are found in the North Atlantic 
cast of Newfoundland tlie whole year round. 
They are most numerous in the spritig, when 
they are carried soiith over the Grand Bank.s 
in the midst of the mighty frozen fields which 
are torn from their Arctic home and sent car- 
eering across the wide waste of waters from 
Greenland to Labrador. In the weekly bulle- 
tin of the United States Hydrographic Office 
for April 8th, 1903, appeared the reports _ of 
no fewer than eighty-two steamers arriving 
in American ports the previous seven days, 
and sighting ope or more bergs on the pas."*- 
age, while a week later eighty-five reports 
„)Vere published, and the hydrographer ap- 
pended a note to the effect that a number of 
'others had to be omitted forwant of space. 
As the summer advances and the sun becomes 
more powerful the bergs are melted into 
smaller^t*dgments or break into pieces, and 
l^eing too shoal to ground on the Grand 
Ranks are swept into the Gulf Stream, where 
they He in the way of the steamers plying 
east and west, and cause the .shipping casual- 
ties which .so frequeiitly occur during the 
summer months. 

Last season bergs were unusually numer- 
ous on the Grind Banks, and nearly a score 
of ships were damaged by striking against the 
crystal islands, wdiile the frosty apparitions of 
others, wreathed in fogs, were descried by 
every steamer traversing these waters until 
well up in the autumn. A blustering winter, 
with fierce and persistent gales, the worst for 
en years, caused the bergs to drift south, In 
the grip of the Polar current, and hundreds of 
them of every shape and size, an<l scattered 
or in fleets, were carried across the steamship 
lanes beyond the Banks to imperil the navi- 
gation of these waters by passing craft. Far- 
ther north the bergs were even more numer- 
ous, and many a smack came to an end with 
all on board by striking one in a midnight 

During the spring, when blizzards, fogs, 
and frozen gales obscure the ocean's face, 
they are. indeed, a terrible danger, and ships 
have been know^n to leave Newfoundland 
ports and be sunk within four hours oi depar- 
ture, so thickly are the waters there .sown 
with these snow-dusted hummocks. Then 
the ordinary peril is multiplied many times, 
for the fogs defy the keenest vision, and the 
presence of a squat berg may not be known 
.until the forepart grinds against it. Even in 
summer, when the calm seas and clear hori- 
zons make their detection easy and their eva- 
sion simple, a curtain of fog may descend and 
blot out sea and sky so that the utmost cau- 
tion is needed to avoid disastrous contact 
with them. Sonic of the seamship lines ply- 
ing between England and Canada havt: ctban- 
doned the Belle Isle route altogether because 
icebergs are so numerous there, anrl they now 
utilize the less jicrilous. but sufficiently risky 
route round Cape Race. 

The figures representing llicsc mighty 
masses would be deemed incredible but for 
the ease with which ihcir truth can be attest- 
ed. The passengers on tiic mail boat plying 
to Labrador often count two (.)r three hun- 
dred bergs off that coast in one. day. The. 
Hudson Bay Company's .-iU-amer Pelican in 
K^2 passed one off I'ngava which was nine 
miles long and two hundred and .seventy feet 
high. The British warship Charybdis last 
vcar found seventy-eight in W hite I'.ay. and 
i>nc of these was three hundred and eighteen

Nitinat Lake, so called, thcnigh a salt water 
Inlet from the Pacific Ocean, is situated about 
100 miles froni Vi,ctoria on the west coast of 
Pancouver IslatTo. It is some thirteen miles 
long, and from one to three miles wide, ex- 
cept at its entrance, which is narrow. Along 
its sides there are magnificent forests, which 
are mainly taken up by the lumber interests ; 
Init there are many choice locations suitable 
for fruit, orchard, poultry, pigs and market 

The streams flowing into the lake arc both 
.numerous and pictures(|uc. and offer fine 
trout and salmon fishing, chief amongst 
wdiich is the Nitinat River, navigable for some 
eight miles for small craft up to the h'alce. 

The Clo-oose River lies about a couple of 
miles from Nitinat Lake, is some four miles 
and fIow^s through a fairly wide, fertile valley 
rich in black loam. On either side there arc 
fine flats, naturally cleared and awaiting but 
the advent of the plough; their only drawback 
being that the high December tides flood 
them in winter. They produce fine crops of 
roots, vegetables and hay. 

On either .<;idc of the Flats the land rises, 
and is covered with forest growth. 

The Clo-<X)se River offers sp-lendid sites 
dairying, mixed farming, fruit, (jrchard.s, poul- 
try, pigs and market gardening. It is navig- 
able for small boats at all states of the tide 
up to the Chccwhat Lake, which is a fine cir 
cular body of fresh water, about a mile in 
diameter, and situated some four miles up the 

Many of the locations are \vcll protected 
from wind and the quantity and quality of, 

naturally cleared land is an asset not to be 
easily overestimated. 

There are large quantities of natural hay 
growing on these Flats affording most excel- 
lent feed. 

Probably one of the greatest attractions to 
the neighborhood is its fine weather. The 
nicteorolo.gical conditions prevailing arc such 
that the coast district is immune from exces- 
sive rain ; the high mountains lying further 
inland and the rain clouds pass to a large ex- 
tent over the rolling country near the sea; 
which characteristic geograjihical features arc 
noticeable in many localities along the west^^ 
coast, where within a few miles a totally dif- 
ferent rainfall is rcgisterei.l. 

There is at present a misconception pre- 
vailing that associates the AN^est Coast with 
universal rain; but no doubt when it becomes 
better known that there are a series of fair 
weather ))elts in many localities that this mylh 
will disappear. 

The West Coast has many natural attrac- 
tions as other of the most fa^■ore(l parts of the 
Island, but lack of transportation alone has 
kept it from colonization, but with the advent 
of roads now constructing, it is. passing from 
the oblivion that formerly encompassed it, 
whilst the railroad will shortly usher in a 
new era. and bring tlir towns withm a icw 
hours' trip of these hitherto secluded settle- 

Whilst it is with a felling of regret that 
we then anticipate a depiction in the nnmhrrs 
of the finny denizens of the streams and the 
mvriads of water fowl by the invasion of the 
sportsman, we nevertheless pre.-mmably look 
forward to the army of visitors who will make 
f. tour of the coast road for it>* magnificent 

scenic attractions, and to gain a view of the 
ocean proi)er. which in many respects is simi- 
lar to Devonshire in the Old Country. 

There is a large floating population finding 
employment on road and railway construc- 
tion, .'iurveys, timber cruising, fishing and 
other work; and their camps offer a fine home 
market for garden and other produce, prac- 
tically everything being imported. 

Farm produce of all kinds is much sought 
'after and top prices obtained. 

Land can be bought from .'j^^o per acre up- 
wards ; prices varying according to location 
and .soil, and whether situated on a ro.'td nr 
watcrfront, etc. 

The district has many excellent home sites 
and there is less rock and a larger proportion 
of s(.>il than in many other parts of Vancouver 

The ocean, lakes and rivers afford a vari- 
ety in boating, bathing, fi.-;hing and shooting, 
and there is hunting of all kinds in the vast 
surrounding forests. 

Triinsjiortation facilities arc now- in rapid 
progress of construction — railroads, roads and 
trails — and it is antici])atcd that next year 
we shall be in daily communication with Vic- 
toria and .Mberni. Present transportation i.-? 
by weekly steamer from C.P.R. wharf Vic- 
torid. and also Albcrni. 

With tin- development of this settlement, 
there are good prospects for a limited num- 
ber of new bu.'^iness enterprises. 

For further information. application 
should be made to the Secretary of the Niti-

side of the berg here he was descried later in 
the day. 

In July, 1896, the steamef John Bright 
smash w l a gre at hole- in h er boWs fay drivi n g 
against a berg that lay. almost aWjsshi and a 
^i^r a^d^nt befeli thie;Rbttfer^mf only a 
month later. In May. 1897, the steamer P"^" 
tor was disabled by collision with a towering 
berg, and putting intc> St. John's was docked 
and had a wooden bow constructed. But on 
resuming her voyage she struck another and 
shattered this and the bujkhead to which it 
w-as fastenede, so that she soon filled and 
sank, her crew being forty hours in open 
boats before they were rescued. In August, 
iSgS, the Addington had her bow-s beaten in, 
and in June.. 1900, the Gratia also impaled her- 
self on a floating hummock. In July, 1903, 
the steamer Hedwig met disaster, in a kin- 
dred form, and in August the Baku Standard, 
j^n oil-tanker, hit one of these "growlers," as 
ihe Newfoundlanders call them, ripping apart 
her forepeak. 

Sometimes it is a shi])'s side or bottom 
that is damaged, just as the point of impact 
happens to be one or the other. In the sum- 
mer of 1899, the Alderney, threading her way 
thrdiigh a berg strewn region off Cape Race, 
had one flung against her side, inflicting a 
wound thej-ein from keel to bulwark, and 
damaging two compartments so seriously 
that only the greattsfb^ertion enabled her to 
reach St. John's in safety In 1892 the Imo- 
genc sustained severe damages to her bottoi>|k|^ 
through striking on a submerged .shelf of ice^,:^ 
extending several hundred feet from the par- 
ent berg to which it was attached. This is 
one of the greatest risks in traversing waters 
where bergs are numerous—the fact that the 
contour above water offers no index to the 
shape below, a minaret often being superim- 
posed on a vast flat area, stretching out be- 
lo ater in every direction;, and a w^deadly dan- 
ger to a ship that approaches too near. Ii|.^. 
1892 the steamer Portia, off St. John't?, ra ^^^' 
on one of these ledges, and. disturbing the 
eqtiilibrium of the whole berg, was lifted 
clear out of water, but broke off the sub- 
merged part with her weight and dropped 
back again with her bottom rent, and her sev- 
enty passengers, as well as her crew, panic- 
stricken at their narrow escape from death, 
for she would ])robably have been sunk w-ith 
all on board but for this fortunate circum- 

But it is not steamers alone which are the 
victims of contact with these bergs. On May 
28th. i()03. the ischdoner Wisteria put into St. 
John"s with her bows stove by having strucic 
a berg a glancing blow in a fog on the Grand 
Banks the previous night. She was leaking 
badly, and had she struck the berg head on 
she must inevitably have fotuidcrcd. That

1902. in the same vicinity, ^\■hich collided with 
a berg under like conditions, only slic struck 
a more direct blow, and shattered every plank 
in her frame, so that she filled and sank al-

out of the sixteen souls comprising her crew. 
In September 1900, off Labrador, the schoontr 
Czar, with a fishing crew of sixty-five, came 
near hurrying them all into eternity when she 
lonndered within an hour after running into 
a berg. J-'ortunately another vessel lay near, 
and she rescued every soul, though by a very 
small margin. In September, 1903, the bar- 
que Belfast had to be abandoned off Cape 
Race because of injuries sustained through 
collision with a berg, and in October the crew 
of the French trawler Pengeur were found In 
open boats, their vessel having collided wttji 
a fragment and sunk und*T them.

fifty feet long, with horns like swords, and a 
N-eiiomous tail. On his way, he passed the 
tower, where he saw the [.rinccss herself, "a 
most fair and beautiful damsel, attired in pure 
Arabian silk." The sight of her filled his heart 
with unquenchable courage, and though he 
nearly lost his life in the ensuing struggle, he 
succeeded in killing the terrible enemy of the

gave him his beautiful daughter Sabra, whose 
Fife he had so bravely saved. 

It was many years after this, wdien St. 
George was in England, that he lost his lovely 
wife, the mother of his three sons. 

A solemn hunt had been arranged by St.

the comjiass of half a mile, but they started a

hounds, and gave bridle to their horses.

the rest of those present, he rode forward. His 
infectious enertiy lay crouching the ground, 
who, knowing his death to draw near, made 
such a yelling noise, as if the element had burnt 
with thunder; and spying the champion, he 
ran with such f^^y against him/as if he would

The sensational writer of "The Buiciier of

The <tr)ry centres n.nnrl the secret tragedy

"The Mystery of Nine" 

William Le Queux. Published ii;i2. 

Amongst the newest of new books to be 
found in the London liook Club, which has 
opened its (piarters this week at /;iy Fort 
street, is the "Mystery of Nine," by William 
Le Queux. 

All lovers of the Sherlock Holmes type of 
literature will welcome the jntblication of Wil- 
liam Le Queux" last story (one of this year's 
puljlications) of drama and mystery. The 
story opens with the sudden entrance of a dis- 
tressed but charming girl, al the house of Hr 
Hubert \ cscy, to implore his assistance to 
conceal her from her enemies. Scarcely has 
he acceded to this strange request, than the 
arrival of the police discloses the fact that the 
fair intruder is invohcd in a murder that had 
just taken i)iace in the house opposite. Then 
rajiidly the reader is carried from one exciting 
enigma to another, in, all of which the ,\us- 
trian <C'hicf of Police plays a conspicuous part 
as the protector of the mysterious htmtcd 
stranger.. The secret underlying all the sen- 
sational events, that succeed each other in 
rapid successi'on from the oijening of the first 
chapter to the last page, is well wrapt up in an 
impenetrable cloud of tnystery, and even thp 
most skilful reader versed in the art of un- 
raveling tangled plots, cannot hope to fathom 
the mystery of "Number Nine." .\'o key to the 
solution is forthcoming till the writer reveals 
the truth in the final chapter, v 

but little knowledge of the world and a. very 
lounccd will of her own. ; She is qnile un-

home iniM h.nnelessncss to obtain enlighten- 
meiii. having attained his pur|H>se, is coming 

back." . 

Shuddhodana went out with Ins relatives 
and ministers to meet the prince. When the 
king saw Siddhartha his son. from afar, he was 
struck with his beauty and dignity, and he re- 
joiced in his heart, but his mouth found no 
words to utter. 

This indeed was hi.<^ son : these were the 
features of Siddhartha. How near was the 
great .slu-amana to his heart, and yet what a 
distance lay between them! That noble mitni 
was no longer Siddhartha his son ; he was 
I'.uddha the I'.lcssed One, the Holy One, Lord 
of Truth and Teacher of Mankind. 

Shuddhodana the king, considering the re- 
ligious dignitv of his son. descended from his 
chariot, and h'aving saluted his .son first, said: 
'•It is now seven years since I saw you. How 
1 have longed for this moment!" 

IJuddha took a scat opposite his father, and 
the king eagerly gazed upon his son. ,He 
longed io call him by his name, but he dared 
not.' "Siddhartha," he exclaimed silently in his 
soul, "Siddhartha, come back to your old fa-» 
ther and be his son again." But seeing the 
determination of his son, he suppressed hi|, 
sentiments, and desolation oviercame hiiHi 

Thus the king sat face to face with ht»,^n, 
rejoicing in his sadness. #pd. i|«4 M ^n ^0^ i

personality, combining qualities that were 
very antagonistic. His life was dissolute, and 
he was often extremely cruel; but he was 
famed for his justice and the wisdom ot his ad- 
ministration. For many years after his death, 
which occurred in 638. he was remembered as 
the Great King Dagobert. Of all the dynasty 
he was the only one worthy of the place which 

f his great ancestor Clovis had carved out^ or 
his descendants with his sword. Twelve Me-

among such atopic the idea of kiM^ip by 
divine right should have a foothold, which even 
now has libt been wholly destroyed. 

During the reign of Dagobert the Mtycwra 
uf the Palace role to a position of great im- 
portance. The position of these officers m the 
body politic cannot be easily defined, for the 
reason that hardly two of them derived their 
authority from the same source or exercised m 
it the same interest. They occupied a position 
somewhat resembling that of a prime minister 
in England before modern principles of par- 
liamentary government were established; but_ 
with this difference, that whereas a prime mm^ 
ister'has. always been chosen by the sovereign, 
the mayors of the palace! were sometimes no- 
minees of the king and sometime^ were forced 
upon the king by the nobles; al9lfr«l» office of 
mayor was frequently recognized as hereditary. 
Among thiilWficers the first to attain 
o^rcat powftr%«#»«>ift4e Landen, the wealthi-

the leaders in the rebeilion «|ffi«8t Bmneh»|St» 
of whom we spoke last Sunda^i^i It w^* he- Who 
offered the crown of Austrasia to Clotairc 11.. 
who in return made Pepin Maire 4u Palais. 
Ipin this position he greatly distinguished him- 
i^leifenrincipally in curbing the absolutism of 
^Iplpe, and thereby strengthening himself in 
the esteem of the people. He was succeeded 
by his son, who , exhibiting more ambitioiLtfian 
jiulgment,' was imprisoned by Cld^^f^S-^d 
strangled. His son, Pepin d'Heristal, w^cast 
more in the. mould of his grandfather timn in 
that of his father, and the nobles of Austrasia, 
fearing for their independence because of. the 
projects of Elroin, maire dupalais of Neustria, 
forced Dagobert II., the then reigning mon- 
arch of Austrasia. to accept Pepin as mair|. 
Pepin's first step was to get rid of the king, 
who was condemned by a council of bishops 
and put tfs^death. From that time forward the 
Merovingian dynasty ceased to even 
the semblance of power, a,lthough it was cus- 
tomary for the maires to put one of the family 
forward as a nominal king, when they felt it to 
be necessary in order to satisfy the traditions 
of the people. Usually the so-called kings 
made their homes in monasteries, taking no 
part whatever in affairs of state. 

Pepin engaged in war with Neustria, and 
at first met with defeat, but in the end was suc- 
cessful and was able to bring that kingdom un- 
der his control. He thereupon cau.sed him- 
,sclf to be proclaimed Duke of Austrasia, thus 
securing his office to his descendants, and to 
be named Maire- due Palais of Neustria, which 
made him virtual ruler of that kingdom. For 
form's sake he maintained the fiction of kingly 
authority by having two of the Ferovingians 
recognized as nominal kings, one for each 
kingdom. There is nothing quite like this in 
the history of any other country. It gives us 
some idea of the capacity of Pcpin <rF-Icristal 
to know that he was able to rule over two king- 
doms, peopled by a fierce and resolute race, chiefs were men of his own rank, and to 
do it in the name of two kings, neither of 
whom had a shred of powder. Though he never 
claimed the tillo. he was really the first Em- 
peror of France. 

Pepin died in 714. leaving him surviving 
only one son, his two other sons having pre- 
deceased their father. The son who succeeded 
Iiim was Charles, and he was illegitimate by 
church law. but not by that of the Franks, who 
permitted polygamy. Pepin's first wife was 
Picctrude. and Pepin, growing dissatisfied with 
her, had put her away and married Alpaide, 
which by a tribal law he had a right to do. 
The Church refused to recognize the second 
,„iion, and .-^o by a strange irony of fate, it 
came about that it was to a child, whom the 
Church declined to acknowledge as of legal 
Sirth. that Christianity owed, in western Eu-

The Story of Guamata the Usurper 
If was in the spring of 521 B. C. that Cam- 
byses, the Persian king, set out from con- 
quered Egypt to return to his own country. 
Reports had reached him that there were con- 
gpirarifs fin fpot, that tales had been told in 
reeard to his mismanagement oi atiairs in me 

Delta, and his enemies were trying to convince 

the people of his insanity. His health had 

-been-very -bad of. late, ^^^^^^^^ 

quent and of longer duration, ^o he decided it 
was time for him to leave the scene of his 
Greatest triumphs, and, returning home, forget 
%w and its attestant troubles. ■ , ' 

' He bad fei«hed Northern Syna, and was 
fh the neighborhood of Hamath, when one 
bright day a herald appeared before him, and, 
in the hearing of the whole army cned aloud: 
"Cambyses, son of Cyrus, has ceased to 
reign. Whoever has until this day obeyed him 
must henceforth acknowledge Smerdis, son of 
Cyrus, as his sovereign lord." 

Cambvses was dumfounded. He nad 
^used hi's brother Smerdis to be assassinated; 
had seen his dead body with his own eyes; 
Who, then, could be guilty oi such an 6ut- 
rageous imposture. News reached him all 
too soon. The usurper was Guamata, one of 
the Persian ma^. whose resemblance to the 
dead prince had always been so «g»^=f^S 
that in the days |||||eir compaiuo«SHtpj|^ 
could tell the dirWbm the other, 
was tall and slim, with a haughty carriage, 
and his clustering curis fell thick upon his 
shoulders. He had always been bold and fear- 
less, arid a great favorite with those who knew 
him' well, though his friends were few, as his 
pride held him aloof. How he was able to 
deceive the Persian people and convince them 
that the story of the murder of %tiM|lrdis ^^^ 
hoax, we canno| |rit Very few,"'fcven ,«noi|^ 
the immediate r^ttainily, knew of th« IttSis- 
sination of the prince, however, so perhaps it 
was not such a difficult task after all. At all 
events he was very gladly accepted by the com- 
mon people, who had always preferred 
Smerdes to Cambyses. 

Persia, Media and the Iranian provinces 
pronounced in his favor, and he was. solemnly 
enthroned. Babylon next accepted him, then 
Elam and the regions of the' Tigris.,- '-.i^^^ 
After the death of Cambyses, <iipii»||! 
sought to further strengthen his position, and 
fearii;g the power of the great feudal lords, he 
deprived them of many of their old-time priv- 
ileges. By a thousand and one acts he in- 
creased his popularity among the common 
people, exempting them from ta.xation and 
military services, and conferring many bene- 
fits upon them. Then when he felt himself se- 
cure upon his throne, he excluded himself al- 
most entirely from public life. 

He had inherited with the throne the royal 
harem of his predecessors, and he condemned 
his wives to complete seclusion, allowing them 
no communication with the outside world. He 
knev>' of a surety that some day his great se- 
cret must be known, but he wished to .so thor- 
oughly establish himself in his people's fa- 
vor as to hold their acceptance, regardless 6f 
his real identity. It was a woman who brought 
about his untimely end. 

In that royal harem, where he .sp^t many 
hours, there were the daughters of Cyrus, ami 
ladies from all the great noble families of Per- 
sia. They were angered, and their suspicions 

lieve that the world was created as it is to* 
days of twenty-four hours each. Often we 
hear from men of apparent intelligence the 
stsrement " 

were aroused at the orders forbidding them 
intercourse with their people. Phaerlime. the 
beautiful daughter of Otanes, one of the seven 
feudal lords that had been deprived of their 
rights, was a favorite with Guamata, and al- 
lowed many privileges, which the other in- 
mates of the harem would not dream of de- 
manding. Now Phacdime was in possession 
of a secret confided to her by her father. Once, 
many years before, on account of some crime 
of which he had been found guilty, Guamata. 
the magi, had had both of his ears cut off. The 
present Persian king, of whose identity the 
Persian nobles coukl not he certain, wore his 
hair so thick and close about his face, as to 
hide half his countenance. Jf the truth in re- 
gard to his ears or lack of ears could be made 
known, then the nobles could <len<)unce him at 
once as an imposter. This truth Phaedime de- 
termined to find out. 

But in spite of all her artfulness, her ca- 
jolery, and her thousand tendernesses, her 
pretty arms were never permitted to twine 

years ago, that is 4094 /ears b«for«( th« d%te 
assigned to the birth of Christ, God created 
the world out of nothing, that on the next 

day He did something else att^^^^'Ott- tiOtii 
the wotk was finished, but ziit^^r^i^<l^-^^

taught this, and when they -grow older and 
learn how incom^^^j^ it,, is with demonstrat- 
ed facts, they zx^^^^^WlS^Y to reject the idea 
of religion entirely. Such persons do not 
necessarily become wicked; the only effect 
which this disillusion has upon them is to 
make them neglectful of spiritual things, ^^'c 
, venture to think thiyujgitate. good would be ac- 
complished if more Stttss were laid upon 
what Jestts taught, and less upon what some 
unknOA\>n person wrote no one knows when. 
It is true that we find in the sayings of Jesus 
observations referring to events recorded in 
the ancient Jewish Scripture, but it is a very 
forced argument to say that this proves every 
word in the Old Testament to be true. He 
spoke as a man to men; He appealed to the 
minds of the people as he found them. 
"Search, the Scriptures," He said, "for in them 
ye think ye have eternal life.'" AgaiVi we read 
*'As Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilder- 
ness even so must the Son of Man be lifted 
I up." Expressions like these are the expres- 
sions of a man talking to men. When we 
hear a minister of the Gospel embellish his 
discourse by a reference to Hamlet, we do not 
understand him to wish us to understand that 
he believes there ever was such a person as 
Hamlet, He is using our knowledge to make 
his meaning clear or strengthen an appeal, or 
for some other legitimate purpose. All 
ern literature abounds in imaginery and we 
handicap ourselves if we insist upon believing 
that any illusion by Jesus or any of the Apos- 
tles is of necessity to establish facts. When 
Paul said to the men of Athens that he savy 
an altar to the Unknown God, he did not, as 
many of our zealous people of today would 
do, tell them that there was no such being 
and that it was wrong to suggest there was. 
He said. "Him whom ye ignorantly worship 
I will declare unto, you." 

The point arrived at is that attempts to 
reconcile things only imperfectly understood 
are not only a waste of effort, but so far as 
they bear upon our spiritual development., 
a possible .source of serious harm. Let 
it be imagined that two person- ,11 r sit- 
ting at high noon in a darkened room and are 
arguing as to whether or not the sun is shin- 
ing. What would we think of them, if they 
. wasted their time in wrangling instead of 
drawing the curtains aside and letting the 
sunlight in? .'\nd yet that is what many of 
us^are doing with our lives. Wc are not sure 
whether or not the world was made in six 
days. We are not quite clear about Noah and 
the Ark. Wc doubt the story of Jonah and 
the whale. V\'c cannot even make up our 
minds to accept the orthodox view of tlie na- 
ture and mission of Jesus of Nazareth, and so 
we sit in spiritual darkness and wonder if 
there can be sucli a thing as the sunlight of 
God's love. Tlinnv aside the curtains of your 
soul and let ihc ^uu.shine in. Do not deceive 
yourself into the liclief that when you have 
done this you will understand the inner mys- 
teries of life any better than you do now. You 
may not be able to satisfy yourself why the 
Titanic went down ov yonr baby dic-d. I'.nt 
yon may hope to feel Uiat. while there arc 
many things you cannot hope to nndcistand 
or explain, there is something above and be- 
vond these things. "S'on may feel yonr heart

.1 *„„^..^.u,.. ,~„,(»'-«'l^«='l!T>ed the earth, and 

that very few persons survived rt. The Bible 
speaks of two such events. One" is what is 
spoken of as the expulsion of our first parents 
from Eden; the other is the Deluge. Deltige 
traditions arc very common, although they are 
not universal. Some of the black races ami 
the Papuans have none; but speaking gentr^ 
ally they are universal among the aboriginal 
races of the North Temperate Zone. Among 
the North American Indians they take the 
form of a story of the Great Wini<^r- 

The legend most ch)sely resembling that 
of which Noah is the hero is thf t ;,^»c^ has 
conlic down from ancient Chaldt^^nd" bar 
biMm preserved on written, tablets. It very 
dosely follows the atoty w^Ui which we are all 
familiar, and in view of the fact that Abraham, 
the founder of the Jewish race, was of Chal- 
dean origin, it is by no means unlikely that 
both the legend of the tablets and that of the 
Book of Genesis had their origin in the same 
tradition. They so closely,. resemble each other 
that one might have been copied from the 
other with only a change of names, and the 
substitution of polytheism in one for monothe- 
ism in the other, or vice versa. The Greek 
legend is that of Deucalion, which resembles 
those just referred to in its major features. 
The story of_ Atlantis belongs to the same 
class. The Celtic tribes preserved a deluge 
tradition of which Oxyges was the hero. 

Here may be mentioned an interesting fact. 
-The thre e gr eat ra€e(M3i4intiquity.,with_vA5y-, -^UJ 
records we are most iamiliar, were the Chal- 
dean, the Hebrew and the Greek. Each of 
theie possessed a literary basis for "Their sys- 
^ ttwiWTdigion. In the c4Se ol the Chaldeans. 
I litofi^lftted of what is totown as the Epic of 


possess which is beyond all \alnalion. Von 
may be able to say: "Thy will lie done." not 
as one who is telling the Deity to have His 
own way, but as one who realizes that the love 
of God passeth understanding and that all 
must be well. 


The Queen of Belgium i» said to be an ac- 
complished violinist. 

Gilmanesh; in the of the Hebrews, it was 
ttkiyi^^Df Genesis, and in that of the Greeks, 
iTWlhe Iliad of Homer. In the first two 
the Deluge plays a very important part; but 
Homer does not speak of it. We need not m- 
ferirpm this that the Deucalion legend was of 
pMl-Homeric origin. It is exceedingly diffi- 
'•ult to fix the orecise dates of ancient events, 
^.is^i^UKxc seems to bft^^jCfiifllj^Psitive tbat Ho- 
l*ieti tl there ever was ^lich ah individual, flour- 
ished long after the Chaldean tablets were writ- 
ten and the Hebrews put into literary form 
the traditions of their race as ffecorddd in 
Genesis. We do not feel able to accept the 
claim set up by some writers to the effect that 
because Homer docs not mention the Deuca- 
lion deluge, we may therefore conclude that it 
has its origin at a later day than the seige 
of Troy. It bears too many of the earmarks 
of great antiquity to be assigned to a com- 
paratively modern origin. 

The American legends of the Glacial Age 
are different from the deluge legends 01 the 
Eastern Hemisphere, in that in many instances 
they tell of a period of prolonged cold, ihe ^ 
Glooscap legend of the Malicete Indians of 
Ub*^^ Brunswick distinctly relates to a great 
TMcaJ change in the surface of the country 
anFto the retreat of the ice^to^the^North. 
In this legend the Ice is, typified under the 
name "The Great Beaver." The scene of the 
Beaver's woric is laid on the St. John nver, 
and we are told:of the fiUing^p of^ the_^old 
river channel. Nowadays the Pominion Gov- 
ernment is about to spend many millions of 
dollars establishing great harbor works at 
Courtenay Bay, St. John, and dredging out a 
ship channel. This is necessary because a 
lon^ time ago the Beaver filled up what used- 
to be the river bed. Then all the land became 
cold and nearly every one died. Then cafhe 
Glooscap. the divine, and the story tells how 
he drove away the Beaver, and because it was 
too heavy a task to remove the huge pile of 
sand and gravel, with which the river had 
been blocked, he cut through the solid rock 
where the celebrated "reversible falls now 
are This legend is on all fours with what the 
geologists tell us took place on the Niagara 
river and at the Falls of St. Anthony during 
and at the. close of the Glacial Period. Ihe 
writer asked an old Indian where the Great 
Beaver had gone to. PI e replied: ' He go 
back very slowly and is way up Canada way. 
This seems to be a reference to the gradual 
retreat of the face of the glacier towards the 

Thcr. several Pacific Coast legends 

which di.Lniclly refer to the upheaval of the 
mountains before the beginning of the Great 
Winte-. the winter that was as long as three 
winters. When geologists tell us that there 
must have been such an upheaval to account 
for the presence of the glaciers, it seems not 
unrea.sonal>lr that the legends refer to this 
event, and ii thov do. it follows that the ab- 
original races nm'st have been living here^ be- 
fore the Glacial Period. This is not very hard 
t., believe, now that we arc not forced to ac- 
001)1 the explanation that millions of years 
have pas^scd awav mucc the ice was melted. 
The Ix-cn.i of Hiawatha is a story of the 
Cxlacial Period. . Longfrliow hardly seems to 
this, urobattlv because he was 

"There were 
Storm ages, murder ages 
Till tlie\vorld falls dead. 
And men no longer spare 
Or pity ''ne annthcr." 

Here wc have an account of what doubtless 
took place in the struggle (or e.xistencc 
brought about by the coming of the Ice Age. 
In the Norse mythology we meet the same 
expression as we, find in our coast legends, a 
winter as long as three winters, and it is in- 
teresting to remember that among very primi- 
tive people three was the limit of calculation. 
Again we read: "When snow drives from all 
quarters, the frosts arc so severe, the winds so, 
keen, there is no joy in the sun. There are 
three winters in succession without any in- 
tervening summer." The Younger Edda tells 
" of one layer of ice being piled up upon an- 
other clear into the Ginangagap, wdiich means 
down into the middle of the^^B||^c. There

Fierce with the lust of life,

Dyed with the blood of strife. 

Aye, kings have madly flayed me,

In the war she earned the name of the 
I^Iorence Nightingale of the United States, but 
even after she had proved her right to this 
title she had to encounter prejudice, and Con- 
gress was not as grateful to her as it became 
later on. She was in Europe when the Franco- 
Prussian War^roke out, and again took the 
field as a nurse, covering herself with glory 
and receiving the thanks of nations. It was 
on this visit to Europe that she became ac- 
quainted with the Red Cross Society, which 
hail been formed as a result of the Treaty of 


(Continued from Tagc Two/) 
Islands, on the West Coast. The I'niled

a resblutibn that whereas with the, progress of 
industry and the development of trade through- 
out the world, the establishment of uniform 
systemsof weights, measures and currency be- 

comes more and more desirable and necessary: 
therefore be it resolved that this Eighth Con- 

.r,-P«v.- of ( Mtj inl>(»rw- .if C'>'nniPrcp rif tlie Llll- 

l)ire recommends the appointment by the Im- 
perial Government of a Royal Commission, 
which shall investigate and, if possible, recom- 
mend uniform systems of weights, measures

Empire. In this connection another chamber 
of commerce submits that this congress is of 
opinion that the varied and C-omplicated sys- 
tems of weights and measures arc unsatisfac- 
tory from an educational, ct)mmercial and Im- 
perial point of view.

Urge Fixed Date 
A resolution will be submitted urging that 
it is desirable to establish by international 
agreement a fixed date for Easter and to ap- 
proach the various governments of the Em- 
pire with a view to summonsing a diplomatic 
official conference with the object of estab- 
lishing a fixed international calendar. 
_ The last i-esolution of importance on the 
official programme is submitted by the Lon- 
don Chaml:)er of Commerce as follows; That 
in view of the existence of a growing tendency; 
to misrepresent and misdescribe the nature, 
origin, quality, (luantity and value of all kinds 
of goods offered for sale, this congress urges 
upon the governments of the Empire the ne- 
cessity .for the more strict enforcement of the 
local laws relating to false marking, and for 
such further legislation as may be necessary 
where such laws arc not effective for 'the pre- 
vention. il^E^i... B'urther, this congress urges 
that the'lMI^I'bvernments siiould endeavor to 
secure siiTiifaf action by foreign governments 
by international agreement or otherwise^

Frcdrika Bremer. Ellen Key, Selma tager- ' 
lof — the fame of the three names has come' 
over seas and made the Western world vague- 
ly aware that in Sweden women are rather 
especially active. 

Fredrika Bremer has been called the found- 
er of the Swedish Federation of Women. From 
•her youth up she had dreams of the freedom 
and development of women, and her life was 
well nigh a complete consecration to the caus^.„ 
she chose to champion. For it she wrote ahi 
traveled and lectured and planned and pleaded. 

Following in her footsteps came the young- 
er writer, vSelma Lagerlof. .She, too, is a writer, 
iind one of such note as to have won the Nobel 
prize for literature with her "Wonderful Ad- 
ventures of Nils," written to acquaint the 
school children of Sweden with the flora and 
/auna of their own counti'y. And she, too, has 
turner! Ti'^r talents to the service of the wo- 
man's movement. She believes, she says, that 
"a touch of tlic indefinable has stirred woman, 
and she thinks that all the feminine unrest, all 
the feminine effort, all feminine hopes and am- 
bitions and careers are working toward the 
common good. "Be certain," she told her w(v 
men listeners at the Stockholm congress last 
\car. "be certain that your services, now de- 
spised, shall be sought hereafter— ishall be in 
such demand that you will hardly be able to 
meet the needs. Be certain that woman shall 
soon be in evidence everywhere, in uninhabit- 
ed regions and in cities, with many new occu- 
])ations not yet known to us." She ailmits 
easily that women are not perfect. Hut are 
men perfect? she wants to know. And how, 
she asks, are wc to attain that which is good 
and great witluiut mutual confidence and help? 

Ellen Key, the other Swedish writer, is per- 
haps the best known of the three in .America. 
ITcrs has been, possibly, the more comprehen- 
sive philosophy, hers tho less concentrated ef- 
fort on feminine dcvclopmeiiL as distinct from 
masculine development ; hers the plea for tho 
larger human outlook, the finer erotic appre- 
ciation, the surer quickening of the spirit, tlic 
ju.<iter interpretation of the letter. 

bhc can hardly be a'gain^l s-n-i 

bilit^ as hef detfactoTs claim, else why write: 
books to try to convince people on what base^ 
'^iocial responsibility should rest? She is wor-' ' 
shipful toward the child, she believes in mar- 
riage — and she believes in free divorce. When 
br!* Emma Sanders spoke on the subject of 
Ellen Key at the meeting house of the Society 
of Ethical Culture in this city recently, she 
scored a point by differentiating from her au- 
dience between "free" and "frequent" divorce. 
Free divorce, she reminded them, Js pha sed on'will and judgment of the-lgi™||Wt>tnan. 
TTere in America divorce is fre?; T^^ fre- 

quent. Frequent divorce is based on on the 
evasion of law. and the very thing that ought 
to make the divorce fundamentally legal, the 
agreement to dissolve the marriage for the 
good of all concerned, is the thing that consti- 
tutes it in legal aspects a crime, "collusion."—

"smell" the bergs; but the Newfoundlanders, 
the most expert navigators in the world, ridi- 
cule this, their experiences being that there is 
no means of becoming aware of the presence 
ol' a berg save through the ghostly radiance 
it throws off as it approaches. 

-^....-i—JBecause of the ice the Grand Bank waters 
ire but little navigated during several months 
of the year. Even the Atlanitc liners had to 
abandon them owing to the presence of this 
menace. The experience of all sliipping men 
is that an ice encumbered ocean is only navi- 
gable by sjiecially built ships, and even then 
the greatest caution must be (jbserved. Tiial 
too is the experience of other countries with 
a |)cri-Arctic aspect. The widespread field:- 
of frigid blue are not to be traversed with im- 
punity by _every "tin^pqt" "f ,1 steamer, tuiih 
only 'for contending against wind and vvavc. 
The blow of an ice-hummock would fracture 
the plates of one of these as it would an egg 
shell. Russia's troubles in this ' respect 
brought out the Ermack. On the Great Lakes 
there are powerful ferries that smash their 
way through flats of ice many inches thick. 
But this is but as porridge compared with the 
massive proportions of the Arctic floe in New- 
foundland waters. vSev en-eights of an ice- 
block are below water, so when one sees an 
exijanse of water five or six feet high one 
knows that it is forty feet below tl-|e surface 
and a po.->itive menace to everything near that 
is the creation of human hands. 

'I'lic physical difficulties these facts in- 

jyolve are neither few nor trivial, and lo cope 

with them is almost i)eyoiifl human |)Owcr. 

'There is nothing that can withstand floes or 
bergs; the)' <lefy every fabric afloat and tiie 
most ingenious contrivances of human skill; 
and unless some extraordinary invention will 
enable the ships to detect the presence of ice 
in the vicinity through the pall of fog which 
enshrouds this area, this peril must continue 
to be the most serious limitation to scientific 
|)rogr6s^. marine architecture, and busincis 
endeavor in navigating the North AtUtntic, 


The next few days will probably see the is- 
sue of the' first Georgian stamps of the British 
Crown Colonies, and others will follow in the 
near future. Though it has been stated that 
the colonial governments have gone to Mr. 
Bertram MacKennal, A.R.A., who designed the 
Bi-itish stamps, the sculptor yesterday told one 
of our representatives that the only colony 
which had approached him was New Zealand. 
"I have designed the stamp for New Zealand." 
he .said, "though I have never seen one, and I 
fancy that in some of the other cases they have 
used" a head from a photobraph of one of the 
heads from my coin. This was not approved 
by me, but. of course, the photographs have 
been published, and one can't 'help it. The 
design was from special studies of Ills Maj- 

The first issues of stamps will probaldy 
be those of St. Helena and the Cayman Isl- 
ands. The colonial authorities have adopted 
f, M- the -lain]) the portrait of the King as 
.^liown on the Indian stamps, but without the 
mantle, and with the crown suspended above 
the head. 

Among the Crown colonics and protector- 
ates that are to issue Geor^^ian.postage stamps 
this year are Falkland Lsl'ands, Barbadoes, Ni- 
geria and Ceylon. The new postage stamps (^f 
Xew Zealand and the Australian Common- 
wealth will appear about July. Australia and 
South Africa both secured their designs in 
open competitions, but a curious situation has 
arisen with regard to the ft)rmer colony's se- 
lected design. It showed a portrait of King 
George in military dress, supported by a kan- 
baroo and emu. surrounded by the shields of 
the six .Australian states. But it is stated that 
owing tc the inability of the Australian^ cu- 
■ •ravers to produce a g(jod likeness of the King, 
tliis design will not apjjcar. July i is the date 
on which the .Australian stamps will be ready 
for the world to see and use. 

Newfoundland has the distinction of having 
i.ssued three different stamp portraits of the 
King, one of which was the first that ever ap- " 
peared. It was added to the royjjl portr^ ' 
rics of Newfoundland about tweWt yr^**^ 
and as <*f the face value oC Jivft """^ 

George was then Duke of York. The earliest 
stamp portrait of His Majesty after his ac- 
cession was that of the 15c denomination of 
the stamps commemorating the three hun- 
dredth anniversary of the colonization of New- 
foundland. It was issued in August, 1910, only 
three months after King George ascended the 
throne. — London Standard.

the Prtissia out of which New Germany has 
been created. The attempt tO abolish war is 
in reality not only stupid bttt "immoral and 
unworthy of humanity." It is an attempt to 
deprive man of his highest possession-^ie 
right to stake physicaMife for ideaT ends. The 
German people "must learn ito see that the 
maintenance of peace cannot and, must never 
be the goal of policy." • .' 

The Duty to Make War ' 
General Bernhardi accepts the doctrines of 
.Machiavclli, with the ingenious adaptation o| 
them, invented by Trietschke, that sirice W> 
Reformation power, is not an en^'itt itself but 
must be justified by its employrnent for the.: 
highest human good. The sanctification of th* 
(kKtrine is not miich consolation to -its pO.*- 
sible victims. Having accepted ''the do6|fi|lii 
with its post-Reformation atiaptation, Cierieral' 
1 lernhardi is candid enough to examine the 
moral difficulties which hamper -its iappHca- 
lion. Clearly enough, jf a country is. prepar- 
ing to make war for it? own '^hlghitSftl" pW*

1 he country or countries on;#hich it is tfitend'' 
inir to make war. How, tHWi1*B?e statcsin*«i to. 
combine such a policy with the ordinary re- 
ciuirements of honesty and sincerity? General 
I'.ernhardi remarks that so far as he knovtrs no 
solution has as yet been found for the difficitH 
i)r6blenT contained in the question, "In how far 

beUe»i;wat a conflict between personal Snd 
pditidtirabrality can he avoided by clever on* 
pfttdent diplomatic behavior, if one i& perfectly 
clear about the goal which one desires to reach 
and always remembers that the means which 
one employs must ultimately correspond with 
the moral character of this goal." 

The whole passage may be commended to 
all persons who are shocked at an attitude "f 
suspiciiSn towards German diplomacy when 
and where it is influenced by the advocates of 
war. »

teresting passages on the shifting doctrines of 
German naval intentJon.s, They remind one 
of theological controversies about the Evolu- 
tion of Truth. General Bernhardi admits that 
English peofde until about the year 1903 
never dreamed of a war with Germany. He 
considers it rtSTural that they should try id 
recover lost ground, but nevertheless says: 
"This fact docs not, however, aher auythtng

of the circumstance that the English war pre- 
parations have their point almost exclusively

with Germany. U is Grand Admiral von 1 ir-

Lord Esher's Conimcnt 

Lord Pusher writes: 
If General lienihardi's opinions were those 
of the niajoritv of Germans it would be an 

almost hopeless task to create a more Inendiy 
understanding between Germany and Great 
Britain. The Bcrhn correspondent of the 
Times -in Jii& .rcvkw oi QeneraL BernhardTs^. 
new book represents that influential writer as 
a protagonist of political and ethical views ut- 
terly at discord with tiie fervent beliefs and 
hopej* of civilized mankind. According to 
Gefierat Bernhardi, any man or body of men, 
anxious to see dill«F«»ces between nations 
settled, Ji«>.tbe differences between indniduals 
have cO'flie to be settled in civilized European 
countries, are hypocrites or worse, and their 
opinions poisonous. To attempt to abolish 
war is not only stupid but immoral and un- 
worthy of humanity, and he. boldly counters 
Bismarck's dictum, that "even victories can 
be justified only when they have been forced 
Upon 'a country," by the r-eflection that I'.is- 
marck's practice did not accord with his i)re- 

cept. . _ 

There seems not be room m Juiropc. or 
even in the Wprld. according to General Jiern- 
hardi, for tW till development of the ^ moral 
and material welfare of Gerdiany and France.

condition of a healthy German policy. Wars

1 1 ;n hardly conceivable that after 2,000 
years of Christian teaching, and in the midst 
of a jieople from whom have s])ruug some ot 
the loftiest thinkers an<l some of the greatest 
scientific benefactors of the human race, such 
opinions should find expression. They eman- 
ate, too. from a soldier hitherto held in the 
highest respect by all wdio have studied war 
il.-; :in odious j)ossibility, and not as an q\m\ de- 
.sirablc in itself. No one could have suppose<1 
that such ideas so crude and juvenile could 
have survi^•cd the awakening processes of re- 
cent times. Civilized men, even with mili- 
tary proclivities have come elsewhere to 
, ilji^ war between nations is; for all the gv ^„ 
it biifjigs, just as barbarotis and futile as t||p,,,, 
Rcttleiment oHit quarrer between iii^lSJii^ 
by ah.sappeal to fists or rapiers. O^^^ 
Bernhardi belongs to the Middle Ages, and 
his thoughts surge about in armor. 

'No sane man can at the present time, and 
under existing conditions, deny the impera- 
tive necessity of maintaining at the full the 
armed strength of the nation to which he be- 
longs. The reason is that there are madmen 
and thieves and cut-throats still at large, but 
no sane man attempts to justify thjs misfor- 
tune. It is certainly odd that any niM-^hould 
be found to advocate war between highly civi- 
lized peoples, aS a noble or even a rational 

method of settling common disputes or 
achieving lofty ideals. 

If General Bernhardi would come to this 
c6unri^~afid~Tirove~aTnoiig^"the best elements 
©f our people, among our Utiiversity students 
among our workers iii gireat cities, and among 
our peaceful agTicultural poputatiou, it would 
acmaze him. not to find a single, soul, unless it 
be here and there a lover of paradox, that 
could be got to t^^nderstand his point pf view. 
The same may unquestionably be said, and 
truly said, of the great masses of the French 
people. Can he maintain that idealism is 
dead in l^Vance and England. What can how- 
ever have happened to Germany, if General 
Bernhardi's opinions arc accepted by his fel- 
fow countrymen as representing the highest 
development of modern idealism? If these 
views were really shared by the great Ger- 
man people, \ye should have to admit that the 
entente between Great Britain and France 
rests upon, fdundatibns far deeper than those 
of material interests. It would be said, not 
without justice, that Germany would well de- 
serve to be excluded from the sphere in which 
those nations move who long to be free from 
barbaric influences, and desire to advance to- 
wards a higher civilization. For those who 
hope always to see Germans and French 
stand shoulder to shoulder with bur own peo- 
ple in the van of enlightened thought it is 
piteous to find a German writer, so di.-tin- 
guished in the techtiical field of military stral - 
egy and tactics, plunging so forlornly into a 
qtiagmire of international politics afid ethics,

wasas follows: "At first the only matter 
was to show the German flag at sea and on 
the coasts on which Germany traded." The 
expenditnre required for this provoked, says 
General Bernhardi, the opposition ^ of ihme 
who regardiid a Gennan Navy as superfluous 
and dangerous, and th^ Gefman Government 
fell back on the theory of cOaat defcrtift. This 
theory did not endure, and all persons of in- 
sight "felt the necessity of meeting the at- 
tacking enemy and repelling him on the high 
seas." This meant the construction of ar- 
moured ships, but the authorities adopted 
half measures, and "repeatedly insisted that 
Germany was far frbih desiring to compete 
with the great navies, and. of course, would 
lie content with a Navy of the second class." 
litis second stage soon passed, and after un- 
successful efforts to arrive at the goal as 
cheaply as possible by.the dexelopment of 
torpedo craft and so on, »t Nvas recognized 
that "a country like the J^^^^-^^P!''^*

ing population, and Which. on account of its 
political and econo«1i^ progress is hated ev- 
erywhere, cannot dispense with strong arma- 
ments at i»ca and on the cOasts," That was 
the third stage— recc^nilion that all possible 
enemies must be beaten -at sea. As already 
indicated. General Bernhardi and his friend* 
at any rate have reached the fourth stage—

Those who urge the use of coffee. and tea as 
substitutes for alcoholic drinks are importing 
from Germany large quantities of caffeine to 
be used in making various other "temperance 
drinks." The liclief is rapidly gaining ground, 
however, that beverages containing alkaloids 
do almost ^as much harm as alcohidic drinks 
.Vfanv attempts have been made to draw the 
poison fangs out of the coffee bean, btrt ap- 
parently it cannot be done 'without .sacrificing 
the aroma, too. 

Tea is admittedly less harintul than coffee, 
in spite of its containing twice as much oi the 
active alkaloid as coffee; a circumstance which 
had led Dr. Harnack to promulgate the view 
that the injuries to heart and stomach done by 
coffee are due chiefly to certain products re- 
sulting from roasting the beans, especially cof- 
fee oil. 

An effort is being made in Germany to sn!)- 
-;litute for coffee and lea a beverage which, 
while having their refreshing effect, contains 
-JO small a i)roportion of alkaloid substance as 
to be comparatively harmless, namely, mate. 
In .Argentina the use of the mate leaf has in- 
creased enormously in recent years, the annual 
consumption averaging nearly twenty pounds 
per person, and in I'araguay it is even as high 
a.s twenty nine poun<ls per inhabitant

Sunday, April 2S, 191S 

At this time of year, when all New Kng- 
iand is watching the slow warming up of the 
llierniometer and each sign of the coming 
spring is carefully and laboriously noted, from 
the first robin down to the first strawberry, 
it may be useful to proclaim, for next win- 
ter's use, how *ar the tropics have moved to 
New England and to insist that the victims of 
grip or of sciatica shall remember for iheir 
own advantage that live days of sailing will 
bring a New Yorker into the tropics, while a 
week will lake him to the newest and latest 
property, the Canal zone. 

Of course, the railroad will bring one down 
lu oranges and bananas even sooner. But it 
is an added advantage to have a quiet sea voy- 
age. It is only Yjj^Jatcly that comfortable 
steamers have reVMIIK^'^the itharms Qly<lfl0' 
ing on ottr own .si^'i^. the Atlanti^.j^W^ ^'l^ 
ing the Caribbean Sea instead oi tll« M^e4^tei*^ 
raneon as our playground. It is hard to tHoose 
among all the tcmptitfjf names on the adver- 
tising,>Mdejrs of the ail|iBtent steatjier Unes. 
Port^feo, Cuba and Jamaica arc ottty sam- 
ples. Bttt|ttst now all trips include Panama 
in t^eir itineraries. Certainly any United 
^^aflS citizen who does not get a sight of the 
canal before it is finished loses a great oppor- 

Jamaica and Its People 

It happened thaf Jamaica was our stopping 
Olace on oilr way to Panama. It surely w as 

"" ^delightful, on the fifth morning alter leaving 
^ew York in a cold drizzling rain, to have the 
smcH of orange blossoms drift into our state- 
TO Crtn w ind'^w, and to come on deck to look 
' ''^^ on the charming little islands buried m 
tropical green folijige of everV kind which 
forms the quiet, windless little harbor ol?<Wt 
^^^^ntonin. The pretty green hotel, the TiCE^ 
^^Slield, stietched its cool verandas out. along ?'^* 
promontory. The large, shady, cool-lookmg 
school ornamented another point. Palm trees : 
and. morning glories rioted in peace together; 
The scattered houses nestled in hedges pf hi- 
biscus or of ferotons, v^^ith vines of every sort 
heaped up over the verandas. The world here 
and its inhabitants were as tranquil and peaee- 

fiil as the air. , . ^:. 

For us unrestful Yankees an automobue' 
from Kingston, ordered the day before by 
wireless from the steamer, was waiting to take 
us across the mountain to Kingston, but even 
that seemed to have a softer whirr and a more. 
leisurely swing than ours at home .Certainly 
our young chauffeur Was charming with his 
liquid consonants as he waited on our pi eas^/ 
ure and ministered to Our whims with an un- 
ruffled calm. The Jamaican negro makes up 
the larger part of the popivlation of the island* 
He is noted wherever he goes for his inco|-j^ 
^'^igible laziness and his insubordination, as w# 
as his strength and perfect health.TiKcrei = Oft 
his own island, the white man bows j^the ift* , 
evitable and rules much aS the negro allows. . 

The negro man is independent and surly; 
the negro women, the young ones at l^st,ih'- 
dependent and saucy to a degree. Even /a 
passing tourist cannot fail to see these traits m " 
\ the wa"vs-and manners of every one with whom 

he comes in contact. But when the plantations 
along the road can plant banana trees and co- 
coanuts in one orchard and receive good crops 
of both, almost without the trouble of cultivat- 
ing, and the proprietor lives in perfect com- 
fort in a one-roomed cabin, with ragged duck 
trousers, denim shirt, one strap of a suspender, 
and a palm-leaf hat, as his whole wardrobe, 
there does not seem to be much occasion for 
effort, and modern civilization has very little 
to take hold of. His wife, perhaps, has felt 
the unrest of modern civilization so far as to 
buy a bougainvillier colored muslin and a store 
hat, and American or English shoes, but she 
wears a bandanna handkerchief and puts her 
shoes in the basket which she carries on her 
head, so the luxuries do not often need renew- 
ing. . 

Wornout trousers were renewed by puttmg 
on a« second pair when the holes of the first 
one seenYed too serious to neglect. The holes 
of the second pair luckily never seemed to be 
in exactly the same place as those of the first 
pair. The races are as varied as the tints. The 
Chinese and East Indians, who are slipping 
into this rich island, look as if their quiet and 
persistent industry might soon reap a rich re- 
ward. If they are able to own land, they will 
probably soon oust the original owners from 
their plantations as justly and inevitably as our 
New England farms are passing into the hands 
of Jews and Italians. But meanwhile the na- 
tive Jamaican is as independent as they make 
them, and the invader, whether or trad- 
er, must take things as he finds them there. 

' The Myrtle Bank Hotel at Kingston might 
belong to' any fashionable winter resort, is 
well situated and planned as wisely as if- Flag- 
ler had built it. The employees are much the 
same as one meets in other such places but 
embhaMzed in their manners by the atmo- 
sphere of Jamaica. But it is but a stopping 
place, if one is on the way to Panama. 

To land at Cohm is hnt little else than ar- 
riving at the Atlantic etui of the canal. The 
ritv of Colon itselt neither receives nor ex- 
pects very much of the traveler's attention. It 
is the great canal which occupies every one's 
thoughts and not the Canal Zone, the five-mile 
strip on each side of the big cut. The Panama 
railroad and what it has done attracts atten- 
tion also when there is a moment to spare. 
In the Canal Zone 
A mere wandering tourist cannot expect to 
appreciate nor even lo understand the tri- 

umphs of scientific engineers in their work on 
the Istiimus. But even ordinary eyes can &ec 
enough to be da/zled and be wildcrcd by, in 
the locks, the dams, the cuts, the breakwaters, 
as well as the minor details of this great work. 
The vast and far-reaching preparations re- 
quired before the great work was even begun 
can still be more or less seen and admired. But 
the joyous exhilaration that belongs to suc- 
cessful effort — the delight uf difficulties over- 
come and success achieved — is something that 
cannot be missed and can be understood and 
sympathized wit'h. It is as evident and as de- 
lightful as to have a breeze laden with ozone 
meet one when emerging from a city tene- 
ment. There is not lacking, eitl^^*, jt ioyows 
wclcomic to the sightseer. Afters

wishing to see the great -work. ^ 

All difficultiel are smoothed away for 
the sightseer, every one is ready to explain 
everything, and all' conveniences possible are 
placed at every one's disposal. Even the com- 
mercial advertisements catch the spirit of the 
^hing and the advantages of Portland cement 
are put into your hand in the form of a handy 
little notebook with blank pages, and explana- 
tions and directions for travelers, and only a 

m o dest two pag e s in t h e mi ddle set forth th e 
great superiority of Portland cement and men- 
tion that 5,000,000 barrels have been used by"

wwk and learn juist what excavations, dredg- 
ijl^ buildings have been done and what is still

' |For the "Visitor's Entertainment 

' When he is ready to go sightseeing every 
help is given him. "Rubberneck" trains ire 
run on alternate days from one terminus to the 
other, which includes not oiily careful show- 
ing of every bit of the work,- but visits to the 
administration" buildings, where men . in ati- 
ihority give lectures with demonstrations of 
^he work and its history. Special trains, too, 
are constantly arranged to do the same work 
for any visitor who has the slightest claim to 
special attention. The doors of the adminis- 
tration buildings seem to be always open to 

visitors, and the workshops as well. It is at

all gradcfi and different organizations are ready 
and glad to serve as unpaid guides when their 
fellow-countrymen come do\vn to sec the won- 
ders that have been wrought. 

This sort of welcome given to orginary 
visitors seems very delightful and wonderful. 
It suggests being welcomed as an invited 
guest attending the graduation exercises of u 
college or a technical school rather than an 
outsider butting in lo see something of a big 
piece of work over which every one is "hump- 
ing himself" to get it along. They surely arc 
hurrying along, every man of them, for all 
that he is worth. A little confidential whisper 
gets repeated here and there to the effect that 
"Coloi^ <joethals, he ifti^^ing on shorten- 
ing up t^e time by two ye^irs and .being able to 
ttim b^ck $15,000,000 to the government when 
the work is finished." But ti^at hope is based 
on the supposition that everything can be run 
on velvet as it is going now, that nothing goe» 
wrong, and that every calctriation proves to be 
exactly right. Just now Colonel Goethals is 
away on a flying trip tO Europe to see if Kiel 
or Siicz or Manchester canals have anytiiing 
that he has not got here already. His return 
has been delayed a little by the Emperor of 
Germany wanting a chance to ask him a ques- 
tion or two, so that he has to take a meal wiUi 
him before he sails for the Isthmus again. He

dinates for a while. 

Science and Death Rate 

Science wasTcaUedon to ^Tierbest agialnst 
disease and death as well as on rocks and 
swamps and motttitains. Then came in the re- 
sults of those enthusiasts aiid martyrs in CtrJ>a»- 
who ^ve eyeit their' lives to find cures for 
tropical diseases: Major Gorgas was put in 
charge of the saait|ti9|».of the Canal Zone. He 
believed in th<5^^?tti«l||!Cperiments and their re- 
sults, but he could not feel sure that what was 
necessary-could be done on the immense scale 
required. .None the less, he grappled with the 
task. Shiploads of crude petroleum came down 
from California. One portion of Ancon has a 
big gateway labelled 'Tetrolia"; beyond this 
gate axe giant reservoirs of the stuff. Every 
gutter and drain is^ coated with the oil, the 
breeze is flavored with it. and in loneiy_ sava,n- 
nahs you find the inevitable keg with pipe arid 
fatucet ready to bedew the stagnant water. 

Concrete, top, is doing its share in produc- 
ing ideal health conditions. It is everywhere, 

^11 are snioot'"* firm 
congrete, where dirt, if it dares to he there can 
be sluiced off in a moment. Many of the 5,- 
000,000 barrels of cement furnished by the 
Portland Cement Company must have been 
requisitioned by the division of sanitation in- 
stead of going into the concrete locks cjr dams. 
The result of this sanitation is that in this hot, 
-teaming tropical country the mosquito and 
the housefly are said to be non-existent. They 
certainly have become negligible quantities on 
the Canal Zone from the Atlantic to the Pa- 
cific ocean ! 

' ' Think of sitting out on hotel piazzas in 
the evening, with electric lights everywhere, 
heavy, passion flower and other vines hanging 
from the roof and pillar.s, and yet not a mos- 
quito or an insect to trouble any one there L, 
Does it not make summer resorts feel ashamed? {

to the cemetery and its name. ' 
Completing the Canal 
Even if the commissioners of the canal find 
tljat they must take the full time originally 
calculated upon and must use all the money 
appropriated for the work, the results should 
make Uncle Sam well satisfied with what ht 

'he railroad was only fifty miles long, but 
the ties Were laid only a few inches apart. 
Such were considered to be the inevitable con- 
ditions of any work attempted on the isthmus. 
When the Americans began to try their hand 
over the canal, this same costly use of human 
life continued at the beginning even as it had 
been before. Fur the first two years the death- 
rate was fearful, as the long rows of Jittlc 
white wooden crosses at Mount Hope in Colon 
and in the .A.merican cemetery at Ancon will 
testify. But men of the United States had had 
too good a bringing up tO 'persist in working 
under such conditions. Its government had 
started vvith too many humanitarian clauses in 
its constitution to tolerate this holocaust very 
long. First and foremost the Canal Zone must 
be made fit for human habitation, then men 
could he required to do their best there. 
■'-%■'■ Changes in the Zone 

One American doctor at Colon in the old

Xessei^S had had the knowledge and the ac- 
cessories which modern engineers now have, 
neither he nor the later Frenchmen took a

" "Maitiy minds are now pointing out how many^ 
and how great will be the future results of 
the present industrial revolution. 
' •, The Two Religions 

! ^'Something far more, saered than political 
Stipremacy is threatened," says the Nagon. 
Tt is the luxurious life of our times' th^BlW 
peril— the sacred week-end, already infrmgfed 
by the profanity of a Saturday sitting, the 
champagne standard, the costly motor, the 
pleasant combination of town and country hie 
the leisurclv enjoyment of unlimited and un- 
earned wealth, all that is the reverse side of 
the seamstress in her attic, and the docker 
turned away empty from the gates, , 

"It is a war of religions— the Religion ot 
Pleasure, which dominates modern .society, 
and the Religion of Life, which is taking hold 
of the humbler people and inspiring the de- 
mand for the conditions under which, m all 
grades, and in all occupations, men and wo- 
men may not merely exist, but live as men 
and women." 

Civilizing Industrial Life 

"Those who urge upon us the undoubted 
fact that other workers, matiy^ of them even 
poorer than the miners, will have to pay these 
higher prices, miss the moral of the story,' 
adds the Nation. "That moral is, not that 
the miner should be refused an adequate se- 
curity for his minimum, but that the other 
workers should press upon society their more 
urgent case for a similar guarantee. Wc are 
passing from the era in which the subsistence 
of any class of our working population can be 
left to the uncontrolled fluctuations of supply 
and demand and the higgling of the market. 
A saner regard for social order and progress 
enforces the need for regulating competition 
in the labor market by laying down a lowrr 
level beneath which no wage bargain \v ill be 
legally permissible. Industrial life will have 
to accommodate itself to this principle of civ- 
ilized life." 

What the "Worker Sees 

H. Armstrong Mall (Methlcy Rectory, 
Leeds), in a k'ter to the Spectator, says: 
"The social revolution has been prophesied 
for long; no one guessed that it was so near 
at hand as now seems likely. Two consider- 
ations make this more than possible. 

"In the first place, the J.^ritish working 
man, although not being a master Of style, he 
s.ays very little, sees and thinks like everyone 
else. Mis silence must not be mistaken for 
ignorance. He observes what is taking place 
around him and draws his own cpnclusions. 
• And what he chiefly notices. is the luxury ni 
the classes above him — luxury no longer con- 
fined to the aristocracy, but passing through 
the nouveaux riches to the bourgeois imme- 
diately above him. In this luxury he claims 
to have his share. Can you wonder? 

The Assault "Will Continue 
"Tli.e minimum wage for coal workers is, 
however, only an outpost of the entire indus- 
trial position, and it may be taken for granted 
that the assault virill continue at the expense 
of the luxuries of the well-to-do until all work- 
ers obtain such a wage and such conditions 
of service as shall enable them to take a legi- 
timate share in the enjoyment of life no less 
than its toil. 

"The other consideration has to do with 
the results of education. For forty years now 
We have compelled the worker to be educated. 
Vi?'ith what result?- Mainly he is' persuaded 
that there is no reason in nature or religioiii, 
or good government (as he* conceives 'these 
things) why all the unpleasant jobs should Be 
laid upon his shoulder.s always, and all the 
pleasant ones— as they seem to him— always 
to fall, to you and me. To say that this is 
God's plan, however .comforting to us, brings* 
no conviction to him. Do you wonder? Books 
and newspapers have opened new world.s to 
him- Why shall he, he asks, be expected to 
clean the sewers, and win the coal, and catch 
fisll on the Dogger, and be, as he considers, 
inaderiuately remunerated for it, whilst we do 
pleasanter work under easier circumstances 
and with much better pay? 

Remove the Discontent 
"There is nothing new in this discontent; 
it is only that now, instead of being satisfied 
with grumbling, the worker is determined 
that the cause of discontent shall be removed. 
He admits that the unpleasant jobs have to be 
done; he admits a certain fitness for doing 
them, and he is not unwilling to continue the 
task. But, he demands that if he takes these 
burdens off our shoulders, we shall make his 
life such as in a Christian community it should

we regard him as a brother whilst we decline 
to make it possible for him to find life as 
stimulating and happy a> he belieA'es God 
meant him to do. 

"This, of course, all means sacrifice on the 
])art of the well-to-do — call it increased cost 
uf living, or taxation, or what you will. But 
self sacrifice used to be a recognized part of 
Christian living, and assuredly there iS only 
line i)rinci])lc on which these disputes can be 
^,,ifli.{l — or better still avoided — the principle 
1)1 the Master, *Do tintn others as you would 
ihev should do unto you.' " 

Some more concrete changes in the near 
luture are pointed out in the .Morning Tost b\ 
an Fnglishman travelling abroad. 

Invention Will Be Quickened 
"It is the end of labor cither way," he 
says. "Caesar has come to his triumph, and 
will die in it- But it is also the end of coal as 
a prime necessity. They have made ail the 
minds of a nation active by causing bodily 

discomfort, and have thereby supplied the 
very strongest possible stimulus to ^invention 
that even a Tyrant could have conceived- Con- 
sequently over and above the leading of thou- 
sands of men's minds towards the discovery 
of more oil, the development of existing sup- 
plies, the refurnacing of ships (with the do| 
whip of Pain, Fear and Hate behind them' 
the old unsolved, but ndPt insoluble, problem 
of harnessing the tides. And that will be 
done partially within the next few years. 

New Forms of Power 

"Side by side with oil comes in, for the 
present need, all patent fuels, 'compressed 
'products— all made possible-^i.e., remunera- 
tive—by the revolt against coal. Pari passu, 
or I>am mistaken, simplification of our rail- 
ways, drastic cutting down of rolling stock, 
fulf compartments in all trains, and mechani- 
cal handling of freight." 

'Tt occurs to us that the evil of this strike 
may yet effect some good, if it teaches the 
nation to think over its fuel .supply,'' says the 
Morning Post,. "The process of inventive 
thought is now directed by stern necessity to 
the problem of economizing coal and of find- 
ing substitutes. 

"If the countr}^ is to take to oil it will be 
in one way a national loss, for, except for the 
Scottish shale mines, oil is not found in any 
great extent in this country. It wouUl not 
add to our national safety if we come to de- 
pend upon American and Russian oil for cnir 
national industries. But oil is also found with- 
in the Empire, and 'the oilfields of the Em- 
])irp. have yet to be developed- It is certain 
that at least as emergency plant oil engines 
must be laid down in many works which now 
only employ coal, and the railways, too, will 
come to employ oil as a fuel for raising steam. 

Harnessing the Tides 
"It may even come to pass that the present 
crisis will lead to the solution of such great 
problems as the harnessing the tides, and per- 
haps of the wind, for the production of elec- 
tricilv. Man is forced forward by necessity, 
and new necessities are certain to result in 
new inventions. But all this may adversely 
affect the coal indu.stry. The collier who pre- 
sumes upon his indispensability may find that 
he is not indispensable after all. Nothing — 
and nobody — is indispensably. Society adapts 
itself with wonderful quickness to new condi- 
tions and builds up new means of protection 
against new dangers. We believe the con- 
structive element in mankind is stronger than 
the destructive."

their vwndows drenched in the spray of the

The grounds are planted and tended with 
every care, palms and shrubs and flowers make 
the hospital grounds the most attractive place 
which the city can boast of, and, while all em- 
ployees are admitted there without charge, it 
is also open to everyone for 30 cents a day! 
Many a trip to "Monkey Hill" must be saved 
by this hospital. Yet "Monkey Hill" is now 
changed to Mount Hope and its changed ap- 
pearance justifies the name. Best of all, the 
disgusting turkey buzzards are no longer to be 
seen in flocks, doing their work as city scaven- 
gers or sitting in rows beside the cemetery, 
gorged and stupid, in the sun. 

The great hospital at Ancon, in the Canal 
Zone, but just above Panama, is even more at- 
tractive than that at Colon, It is high up above 
the "city, looking down even on the new hotel, 
the Tivoli, and out over the bay of Panama. 
studded with its wonderful opalescent island."* 
with their ever-varying tints. The hospital is 
equipped with groups of separate houses in- 
.stead of wards for each disease. Trees and 
fruit and flowers are everywhere. The grounds 
of each house are cared for as if each one were 
a rich man's country home. Verandas sur- 
round each floor of each of the two-storey 
buildings, and all are enclosed in nettings to 
g-j^eep out dust and ensure privacy, even if the 
ply and mosquito no longer need to be guarded 

In providing and caring for the well-being 
and prosperity of all those who live in the 
Canal Zone, the inconvenience of a large popu- 
lation existing with a small base of supplies 
has been thought of and provided for. One of 
the sights for visitors is to visit the cold stor- 
age plant and the commissary department. The 
weekly prices of the cold storage supplies are 
published in the "Canal Record" and the stores 
are obtainable at three different hours during 
the day. A northern housekeeper will feel en- 
vious at such prices as are given in one week's 
quotations — mutton at 17 cents per pound, 
beef sirloin 19, turkey 23 per pound, venison 
27 per pound, grouse 80 cents each. Other 
needs are remembered and provided for. Even 
laundry requirements are remembered and ar- 
anged for. Nor is it expected that man .shall 
live by bread alone. Schools are provided. Halls 
arc 1)uilt for social and for serious uses; 
churches are frequent; clubs are encouraged; 
Y. M. C. A.'s are encouraged and co-operated 
vvith by Colonel Goethals. 

He maintains the army rules as to every- 
thing of the nature of a canteen. All intoxi- 
cating drinks are absolutely prohibited. In 
fact, the tropics here are the tropics no longer 
as they were once understood. Instead of the 
fascinating song of "Where there ain't no ten 
commandments and a man can raise a thirst." 
the ten commandments are revived and en- 
forced most emphatically. One might say 
they are reinforced by concrete and crude 
petroleum. Bright, clear eyed young men arr 
to be seen hanging about the Tivoli in the 
evening, decent and self-respecting, enjoying 
the visitors, particularly the ladies and espe- 
cially the young ladies, if they are lucky 
enough to get an introduction, or else compar- 
ing notes with each other, exchanging the U|i«^,

By V. ir»pl*r Danteon 



vSome weeks ago many readers throuj^liout 
ihe world were fleeply inlcrcsted in certain 

great Culebra Cut at Panama. 

The following is an official rci)ort on llic 
occurrence published in the Canal Record, of 
March 6th, and the cxi)lanation piven by the 
Commission Geologist is both interesting and 

A little less than three weeks ago I notic- 
ed that the material at locality described was 
sending up in the early morning (piite a thick 
cloud of white steam or vajjor. 1 examined 
the spot a day or two afterwards and found 
that for a width of about 20 feet, length of 
about 100 feet and a dci)th of about 15 feet, 
the entire mass of material recently blasted 
appeared to be heated to a considerable teijlr 
perature. Steam was escaping from numcJ'-' 
ous small openings and frornfonr prmcip^l 
vents, or optmrigfi^0ijM»X^M.1^ii<^^^ 
ing about th,re^ "1116116^ r ttt^tocter piA ■ the 
largest about due loot, the temperature was 
•^o high thilt the hand couid not be held at the 
motith of the larger openings lot more than 
a {jiecond^or two, and wh€n withdrawn was 
->4|(l|t4r moist; showing quite unmistakably the 
:^^eiitSl^oi ntt^m or heated vapor. The sides 
of tW'ol the vients were encrusted both with 
. wfiite and yellofw powedered material, the yel- 
low 'i^pearing to be sulphur. What the white 
povtriler was I am unable to state. , 

I liave observed. this locality almost daily 
f^ #ivf>r ^'wn \ye^K«i> , and within the past four 

consitlerable magnetite, i^rcsenl as black >aiul 
and some subangular to fairly rounded grains 

The mainspring of the action here, then, 
as in the other instances observed, has im- 
doubtedlv been the oxidation of the pyrile. 
The reasons why this oxidation has been so 
rapid and effective seem to be as follows: 

(a) The finely divided, almost microscopic 
ciiaracter of the pyrites gives maximum sur- 
face exposure to atmospheric agencies, and 
greatly promotes oxidation. 

(b.) The very warm, moist atmosphere. 
The tropical sun shining directly on dark 
rock surfaces produces a temperature suffici- 
cullv high to great Iv promote oxidati(.ni, es- 
B:;M.;.;;i£Kkfii^^.^l,^ prescie|jM;^S|gtet^«^|U''e. 

st$m& tll# lM»t # tenda to ac- 

celerate chemical actioh and thus tb* heating 
increafies in geometric progression. . 

(d) When the heat of pyritc oxidation 
reaches the comparatively low temperature of 
oxidation of the hydrocarbons present in the 
lignitic shale, they, too, become oxidized and 
still further add to the temperature. Fmally 
the fixed carbon content tends to become oxi- 
dized, at least in part, and gives maximum 
intensity to the action. 

(e) Some heat is also generated by the 
action of the free sulphuric acid on the calci- 
um carbonate for the formation of gypsum. 
Other minor chemical actions added their 
quota to the total heat. 

As the temperature rises all Chemical ac- 
tivity is vastly stimulated and the heating in- 
creases to a maximum. After the most read- 
ily qxidizable substances are consumed the 
heat graduaiiy dies down toward normal tem- 
peratures, which may be reached in a few 
weeks or months- The intensity and duration 
of ;the heat depend largely upon the percent- 
age of finely divided pyrite, volatile matter, 
and fixed carbon in the rocks. 

In order to alleviate the danger of prema- 
ture explosiojft from Idading dynamite in holes 
which 1i a ve become hot. Colonel Gaillard has 
inaugurated the practice of tesiting )\oM.'>» 
the vicinity Of the heatini: areas by; dropping 
into them a small iron pipe longer than 'the 
hole. This is Avithdrawn at the end of ten 
miniites and quickly passed through the ha«»d

"Tlu- Imperial Conference of lyil iM-om W ith- 
in." Hv the Hon. .Sir John G. Findlay, 
K.C.M.r,., K.CrLL-l^-. attorney-general 
of New Zealand, a repIe^c^talivc Oi ^nCVv' 
Zealand at the Imperial Conference, 1911. 
London: Constable & Co., Ltd. 
fn this volume Sir John Findlay does uot 
and does not pretend to tell anything of the 
work of the conference that could not be learn- 
ed from a reading of the official records. The 
interest is in t'he author's \icws as to the mean- 
ing of the conditions which the members had 
to consider, and incidentally in what he says of 
some of his colleagues and others he met at 
the gatherings. He puts them generally on a 
high-level. Mr. Asquith. the prime minister 
a£ the -Uniterl Kingdom, who was in the chair 
the initial meetinj^, he describes as a man, 

|l»:-l»bit|U|^^^of '■de^Ermmlttbff^ho^'-JW

iri writing for the >ret»i aSdifled to an tiJiteilect 
clear, keen and coldly practical, has made him 
in thought and speech tjhat exaCt man. of 
whom Bacon speaks. Jn his talk there is no 
rhetorical embroidery. The sti-eam of his 
ideas iiever loses itself in wordy sands, but 
runs smoothly on betwcep well defined con- 
tinuous banks in the dircctcst course to its 
destination. There is an almost mechanical 
precision in his methods of developing an argu- 
ment. It? parts seem to fall into their places 
with the metallic regularity and certainty of 
the operations of a linotype. But he cannot

of his heart. Sentiment plays a minor part in 
his outlook upon public life. He is not stirred

an incomparable guide and adviser— a strong,

lonial secretary, ^ biiWy spoken <»f. His 
stsaimty of maixBWH^jtttpiliH overshadows a mas- 
t^y adroitness Middling men and influenc- 
ing their coriclusions. Sir Edward Grey is an- 
c»thcrgr0at figure. T-hc conference met once 
as a secret committee qh defence. Sir Ed- 
ward Orey made an address on the history and 
nature Of the foreign policy of Great Britain. 
Sir. Asquith called it a thing which would be 
Stamped on all their recollections. Sir John 

.findlay says of it that with its power, sincerity 
and truthfulness 'it did more to stir and leave a 
sense of imperial unity in the blood of the lis- 

-^ene<^ thaii all the rest that happened or was 
said throughout the conference, Mr. Uoyd 
George is another type of man» of fixity and 
sincerity of purpose, who feels his politics and 
frorn his heartgets tfie courage and enthusiasm 
With #^di be tackles his problems. Others

ISrtid defence affairs were discussed were ll/ord 
Haldane and Mr, McKenna, the secretaries for 

mi/ucst uy HucUrc, vviiOoC sinccrstv* ts conscitU' 
tional, who regards as the bitterest memory of 
the war tlic fact that before it began his loy- 
alty and courage, now admitted by all, were 
impugned in tiie 'iVansvaal councils because he 
said that the war would be foolish and 'hopeless, 
lie speaks English well, his addresses being 
sliort, simple and to the point. He was the 
most popular of the conference visitors, and 
took the acclamation of the crowds' with the 
(jniet dignity of a strong man unspoilt by suc- 
cess and unembittered by defeat. Sir \Viltrid 
Laurier, Canada's chief representative, was 
met by Sir John for the second time, the fir-i 
having been at Ottawa in 1892. Of him i. i- 
said: He spdke with a gri^j^^iir of assttred 
authority ibattfUiy man at tnic^ibfereftce; aave 
Mr; AstjuKm. . . lie seemed to re'ffeCt ia hi»: 
spfieches the Canadian pride in Canada's prog- 
ress. and her superiority in point of territory 
and population, over all , the dominions^ . At 
times it seemed that the spirit he displayed 
was for the occasion unnecessarily independ- 
ent; but there is a directness abotrt his stjrle 
which perWps creates or emphasizes 'this" im- 
pression. Sir John inferred in the tone and 
attitude of her representatives that Canadian 
nationalism is beginning to resent even the ap- 
pearance — the constitutional forms— of , sub* 
ordination to the Mother Country. In conclu- 
sion Sir Jorn says: 

"There undoubtedly seemed in Si r Wilftid — 

Laurier's words and attitude at the conference 
a certain aloofness from the family cifcte— ^a 
civil or rather courtly coldness to t he claim i s of 
the relaKorishrpnah^d^ 

closer co-operation. . . . His prestige was 
great, and he was treated by the British min- 
i^tei^s with Conspicuous courtesy, even defer- 
ence." But his attitude seemed to cause them 
some concern. The writer of such description 
was fairly good at mea,suring men. It is to be 
assumed tfhat he was among those of his own 
calibre when he sat in the gatherings. 

Sir John Findlay alludes to or discusses in- 
cidentally most of the matters that came up for 
public debate at the meetings of the confer- 
ence. He does this in leading up to his main 
position, which is in effect that the present or- 

tanization of the British Empire is neither 
igical nor final. He outlines the old ideas 
that prevailed in London as to the status the 
colonies should hold. These at one time were 
refiected in a statute which excluded the col- 
onists from every market for European pro- 
duce except that of England. The day of such 
legislation, designed, as the acts themselves de- 
clared, for keeping the colonies in a firmer de- 
pendence on the Mother Country, has passed. 
The colonies now trade with all the world as 
freely as may be. For the old order there has 
been substituted what Mr. Asquit'h called "lo- 
cal autonom}^— absolute, unfettered and com- 
plete-— with loyalty to a common head, and 
with spontaneous and. unforced co-operation 
for common interes||i^life;purposes." This de- 
scription, however, aoesliot satisfy Sir John. 
While voluntary association may be, in fact, he 
says, the basis of our Empire, it is certainly not 
so in theory or in constitutional law and rule. 
Supporting this position, he points out that 
whatever grant of local atitonomy may have 
been made to the colonies, the iJritish Parlia- 
ment could, by legislation, directly limit, alter 
or destroy the rights of the people in the self- 
governing dominions. It can make any statute 
it passes operate in the over-seas dominions 
and override any law there inconsistent with 
its provisions. Then none of the autonomous 
dominions have any right to a voice in (|ues- 
tions of foreign policy or in matters of peace or 
war. points are elaborated and illus- 
trated and lead the author to conclude that if 
Mr. Asquith's description is right, the present 
forms and theories oi Imperial government are 
an anachronism; they no longer correspond to 
but contradict the new regime. The new order 
as described by Mr. Asquith is not a guarantee 
of penuaneney. The will that maintains a 
voluntary association may terminate it. To 
think and act as if such conditions were ideal 
and need no improvement may result some 
day in embarrassment. The views of various 
British statesmen on the Empire are sketched. 
Thev lead Sir John Findlay to the conclu- 
sions that so far as opinion in Great Britain is 
concerned neither centralized control nor dis- 
integration has any support that centrali- 
zation is increasingly absurd and disinte- 
gration increasingly impossible, that each au- 
tonomous dominion intends to remain master 
of its own household, that each is and in- 
tends to remain a unit, but a unit is a greater 
unity, and that no participation in foreign 
policy or in questions of peace or war will be 
permitted to the domniions. This he does not 
think is well or the promise of permanent good. 
He writes as one among those who dts.fre to 
substitute for the antiquated mechanism de* 
vised to turn the wheels of a now inaitimafet 
colonialism, some machine capable of bri9g$i% 
a great Empire of free nations into indiMOitiMfet 
union and effective co-operation. He tfeiftSl^

or five days there has been quite a change in 
two important characteristics. The tempera- 
uue ha9 increased and a pale blue smoke, in- 
...^j^lj^^-c^^ steam^is-now emerging, froni-llife. 
?^^ The odor of sutphttric acid which was 
'««ry tntttifitsd when o»>ly steam was emerging, 
is fully as marked today. Tb give an idea of 
the temperature Of the larger vent I tdbk a 
nine-inch brown Manila envelope and held it 
at the mouth of the largest vent for three sec- 
onds, wdien it was totally destroyed, although 
it did not ignite in flame. I even tOok'apieCC 
of the white pine covering of a dynamite box 
and held it for three minutes within the. mouth 
of the largest vent and on withdrawing it, it 
was completely charred, so that another three 

or four minutes' exposure would probably 
have carbuni-ced it completely. 

I would respectfully recommend that 
Commission Geologist be requested to make 
a careful examination and submit, as ptomptr 
!v as possible, a report on this matter^ as'it 
is one of great interest to the work and utt* 
doubtedly concerns the safety of otir men who

we have had premature explosions ii^ the past 
on at least occasions due to chemical heat-. ,

The ntost aggravated case of htfa 
far noted is now going on in Culebra Cut, 
about 350 yards north of the foot of the stairs 
at the observatory tower near Culebra Sta- 
tion. The mass of heated ground here is about 
500 feet long by 20 feet wide, and the action 
reaches a depth of perhaps LS <^'" 20 feet. Blue 
smoke, which contains a high percentage of 
sulphur dioxide, issues from'"vents in the mass 
and fragments or wood inserted in these arc 
readily charred and consumed. A small am- 
ount fkf steam may also be detected emanat- 
ing from local moist spots, but this is mainly 
due to the vaporization of ground water. In 
the investigation i>f tliis heated mass sami)lcs 
were taken, and these were tested qualitative- 
ly for suli>huric acid and for sulphates of cal 
cium, aluminum and magnesium. The tests 
revealed the presence of all of the above sub- 
stances, both in the shale and as the white 
coating vn the moist spots and steam vents 
of the mass. The yellow deposit near the 
larger vents is sulpliur. Sulphuric acid, es- 
pecially, was shown tt) be present in consider- 
able quantity.

were taken, ground witli water in a large mor- 
tar for some minutes, and then concentrated 
to a few ounces by washing or "panning." 
This concentrate showed a high content of 
pyrite. much of which could scarcely be seen

•w^ Ccanpahy, his a Ibng experience as polices 
mah solid detective ott^he Tptonto foi^e* biit a 
few montlis after leaving the city's service he 
remarked that he never knew what crime was 
Until he ivas Called upon to deal wth diaims 
against the. railway company. He declared 
that there was a small coterie of lawyers and 
physicians who specialized, in damage suits 
against the company, gambled on the chances 
of success, and agreed to take no payment for 
their services to their clients in the event of 
failure. Transportation corporations all over 
the world and .accident insurance companies 
have recognizee for many years that one of 
the most serious problems they are called on 
to grapple with is that^of the "fake"' claim. , 
So numerous arc "fake"' claims that these cor- 
porations are inclined to be susj)icious of every 
claim, and as a rule take the ground that every 
claim is exaggerated, if not wholly fraudulent, 
until the contrary is proved. 

These cor])orations have found their 1)est 
means of protection in the Index Bureau, 
wliich is a sort of Who's Who of accident im- 
posters. and doctors and medical men who as- 
sist them in making their claims. When an 
accident occurs that a claims agent has any 
reason to suppose is fraudulent or exaggerated, 
he reports it to the Central Bureau, giving all 
details of the accident, and the name and any 
other information he is possessed of concern- 
ing the persons affected. The expert at the 
Central Bureau then hunts through the statis- 
tics to find out if the victim of the accident by 
any chance was a victim of a previous acci- 
dent, or if his witnesses* have previously offi- 
ciated in a similar capacity. If he is able to 
find that they have, he .<cnds the information 
back to the claims agent interested. It is very 
useful material in the hands of the lawyer at 
the trial, if. indeed, the case comes to trial, for 
he may be able to show that the claimant has 
an ominous record of former accidents, or that 

has been a witness of similar accidents on 


previous occasions. It is possible, of course, 
for a man to receive injuries every month for 
years, and to be entitled t(-> compensation for 
them all. but a jury is inclined to believe that 
a man wjio has been injured two or three times 
has contracted a bad habit? and usually tries 
to discourage him by dismissing his action. 

If the Index Bureau has no record of John 
Smith, it is unable to help the claims agent 
who has applied to it, but it proceeds at once 

to establish a dossier, and while John Smith 
may have no previous record as a seeker .for 
damages and may secure a verdict, the facts 
r of the case ai^e placed on record, and are: avail- 
itilte if he shoitld make a claim later on upon 
iisipe othtf car company or instirancfe 

<»i|iioration. At the convention of the Claims 
Agents' Association held in Atlantic City last 
October a letter was read from Attorney Mau- 
rice P. Spillane, of the Bo.ston Elevated Kail- 
way Company. He said that in the course of 
a trial on the day on which the letter was 
written he had been able to produce a four- 
page list of cases in which the df)Ctor for the 
plaintiff had acted for other plaintiffs against 
the company. There were more than a hun- 
dred cases in the list. The claims agent of the 
Philadelphia Rapid Transit Company recalled 
a number of cases where he had "confounded 
plaintiffs' doctors on the witness stand by 
compelling them to admit tliat they engaged 
very largely in accident damage cases, made 
a specialty of it. and regujarly emi)lo'yed cer- 
tain lawyers for their clients." 

A new York case was mentioned of a mani- 
curist who had been injured in a collision be- 
tween cars. There was no doubt as- to the in- 
jury. The matter of compensation alone was 
debated. The victim was well supplied with 
legal and medical assistance, and her doctor 
declared she. had progressive paralysis of the 
arm. The lawyer said he would not settle the for less than .$7,500. A reference to the 
Index Bureau elicited the information that the 
\ictim had previously been reported by an 
accident insurance company, from which she 
had drawn two weeks' indemnity at .$20 per 
week. Tiiis i)olicy she had taken ottt some 
time after the street car accident, and in doing 
so had declared herself to be in perfect health. 
When these facts were laid before the mani- 
curist's lawyer he promptly accepted the 
amount the company offcreil in settlement 
in the l)Cginning. 

A somewhat similar case was that in which 
a young lawyer sued a railroad company for 
damages to his father-in-law. Investigation 
showed that he had utilized his father-in-law 
in five other claims for damages or accident 
insurance. This lawyer is likely to be de- 
barred, for evidence has been accumulated to 
show that most of the claims were fraudulent. 
A few years ago several young men were ar- 
rested in Toronto r)n a charge of having con- 
spired against the Toronto Railway Company. 
They were alternately victims and witnesses 

of accidents that never occurred. Frauds of 
the sort mentioned are of the most contempti- 
ble nature, for they have the effect of making 
it much fore difficult for the victims of bona- 
fide accidents to obtaiji a satisfactory settle- 
ment.— Toronto Mail la&ii Empire.

Unless a hew lot of cavies (guinea pigs) 
can be found at once fnany of the experiments 
ndw practiced at the Pasteur Institute will 
have to Stop, and great is the concern among 
the savants wh<» work in the laboratories of 
the famous institution. 

For seven months the stock of the small 
victims has been rapidly diminishing. The 
young doctors and students have been prodi- 
gal in their sacrifices to the cause of science 
and have drawn too heavily on the reserve for 
breeding purposes, which has been heretofore 
maintained in the breeding establishment be- 
longing to the Pasteur In.stitutc at Garches, 
near Saint Cloud. "As a matter of fact," said 
a celebrated member of the Pasteur Institute, 
"if we can not soon procure a sufficient num- 
ber of cavies our scientific researches will be 
paraylzed, M not stopped altogether. We use 
an average of 20,000 cavies a year. Our breed- 
ing farm" at G^arches produces about 10,000 a 
year and each little animal thus raised only 
costs us about 15 cents apiece. But our breed- 
ing reserves have been seriously dra^vn upon ; 
we are commencing to feel the deficit, and it is 
one that it is exceedingly difficult to fill. More* 
over, it is a great expense, for the animals we 
are obliged to buy from <Mitsidc breeders cost 
us about 25 cent's each. Besides the cavies 
the Pasteur Institute uses 15,000 rabbits of the 
ordinary sort, 20.000 mice and 10,000 rals. all 
specially raised and prepared for scientific pur- 

In addition to the animals already named 
the laboratories of the Pasteur Institute in 
their various researches annually sacrifice on 
the altar of science 500 monkeys of various 
sorts. 4CK) dogs. J<x) to 500 chickens, nearly as 
manv pigeons. 100 cats. 100 sheep, 100 
50 g'oatsC.50 pig.<and 2 ducks and gccse. Few 
pe<iple realize the holocaust of animals modern 
science sacrifices. 

The role of the rat in vivisection is daily 
increasing, and it has been foui\d one of the 
most useful of animals in experiments on can- 
cer. Indeed, the latest communication on a 
possible cancer cure made to the Academy of 
Science in Paris was the description ai the ac- 
tion and cure of cancer germs on a rat.

All the..^0ld, familiar 

■•\'\pril, so long awaited, has come witft a 
wealth of promise to the angler. It is the time 
of trovit at last! Like a swift flood hurrying 
through a deep-cleft gorge,' the old, long dor- 
mant memories of priceless hours spent in the 
Land of Silver Streams come surging" in tlie 

The old. aHPBTO^lf spring waters is ni 
insistent. Past victories, hard-feught battles, 
in which his speckled lordship triumphed and 
dire disappointments are re-awakened. Fin- 
gers tingle to feel the rod bend an(( quiver 
under the plunge of an April trout. Let us 
respond to the thrilling call and go. 

Other men may struggle arid strive in 
many different ways, but the angler cares lit- 
tle if only he can resume his dearly- loved bc- 
cupation. It is as the breath of life; and so, 
when the sun-fret skies ol April are reflected^ ^ 
In the ripples of the brook, and there is— 'to 
the ardent Waltdnian— a Wealth of promise 
in the wet west wind, he yields wholehearted- 
ly to the spirit cf the spri/ig an-i seeks the 
jiicasant brookside ways. ■ . 

In tncse early dayi> it is the smail l)rooks 
that foain and fret in the!r haste to join the 
dei'.p, j-Iacid river, whicii aj>poal ^o .strongly. 
The wide, rippling reaches of the'<iry-fly 
stream will have his attention later on, when 
the green drake comes to glac'dcn heart of 
angler and stomach of trout. For the present 
lie will seek the red-dappled fellows who- lurk 
beneath the darkling eddies of the merry 
brook that winds, a streak of gold-tipped sil- 
ver, down the sun-lit valley. v 

It is just now, when April is be.strewing 
the woodland ]>atlis with violets, and is no 
longer that far-away ideal of winter days, 
that the angler has the best chance of creel- 
ing a few brace of brook trout. There are 
times when the trout-fisher of the brooks is 
very much inclined to quarrel with hi^ sm*- 
roundings. Days when he can catch anytliing 
tiufc trout, and others when the stream is far 
from perfect. One peculiarity bt the trout- 
bi'ook is that the water rises fast and fa'ii-f 
fast (there arc exceptions of course, but we 
speak of the majority.) There arc days wlicn 
the brook is a huge wave of murky v\ater, 
bank-high and unfishable; and tiicn, within a 
\ ery short time, is showing i*s gaunt ribs of 
whi-te. water-polished stones. The point i-;:, 
of course, to endeavor to strike the happy 
medium, and to arrive at the goal when the 
water is in the ideal condition. 

This however is not always possible. Itv 
is only the fortunate angler who can pick and 
choose the time of Itis going for a jaunt in the 
"Land of Trout." There is nothing more an- 
noying than to receive a message from a 
friend on the spot bidding the longing angler 
"Come, river in perfect trim and plenty of 
trout." Then, after unavoidable delay, cnd'^ 
less tremble and hours of travelling, the antici: 
pating one arrives to have his golden dreams 
of overflowing creels rudely shattered. The 
brook has fallen considerably, and the trout 
are cons])icuous only by their scarcity. A pill 
like this is sufficiently hard to swallow with- 
otit being repeatedly told by the lucky ones, 
"Ah! but yon slKnild have been here the other 
dav." Vague indications of fabulous baskets 
usually accomijany this tantalizing remark, 
and though the angler may have hi> doubts, 
he vexes his soul with di.scontcnt neverthe- 
less. During the glad month of .\pril, "fair 
niaid of sun and showers," however, there is 
practically a certainly of sport. .\t this per- 
iod of the year the streams arc invariably in 
fairly decent trim lor trouting. There is gen- 
erally plenty of watci- of the right color,, and 

The pa ssag|f^B|^^ winter has left its indelible 
mark upon t^'e, "brook. Here, for instance. 
where an ugly^ erej.psjer stump .-spoiled many 
a careful c<|^^^|p^re i^ ""'''■' ^ delightful 
stretch of clear AVaiter. The floods of Janu- 
ai\- carried away the' obstacle, and uncon-

also hurled great:irO«^*'frbm 'their ol3 abid- 
ing places, and :i^fe^tii) many a promising 
pL.i ■! w itb driftwood. The observ-ant eyes of 
the angler note these changes as he fishes

pons are essential when doing battle with 
dainty creatures. There need be iiothing

At the same time a pair of short ones wfU 
probably prove ^ booh and a blessing eire the 
jdajv is dver. There are Jimes when the ang-v 
jeirs liy is clinging tenaciously ,to a vicious ?

step into the water to fish that promising 
bend. In a hundred and one Ways they wik

Irt^yiifo'* W^ And what is mote an-^ 

iifeylilgfthan to lose a good fish, all for want 
of those waders we had thought of bringing, 
btit left in the boot-shed? ^ - 

The trput-brook is like a faithful friend, 
tile better we get to know |t the more we like 
it. Onljjr by assiduous wooing will it reveal 
its ihariifold hidden treasures. After many 
visits the angler knows to a nicety^ where the 
best fish lie. Better than that, he is acquaint- 
ed with its peculiar features, lie, knows ex- 
actly how much line is required to reach that 
little eddy under the shade of yon great rock, 
and he knows to an inch how to hold his rod 
where the trees form an archway over the 
channel. If he holds it too high a broken top 
may be the outcome of his indiscretion; if 
held too low he cannot flick his flies h>to the 
desired spot ; and brook-fishing consists pj-in- 
cipally of evading obstacles and flicking flies 
into all manner of queer places. 

Let those deny it who will, the fisher of 
the winding, over-grown brook is a skilful 
fisherman to the core: and the landing of a 
half-pound trout from a few square yards of 
water in a Avilderness of brambles is a.s clever 
a feat as any to be met with in the great sport 
of angling. 

Xot the least important knowledge the 
angler should acquire is a familiarity with the 
hidden bed of the stream. When wading a 
strange water there is bound ib bfc ii certain 
percentage of danger. Let the angler go 
"cannily" in such places, it may be irksome, 
but it is surely wise ; and in a short time the 
feet Avill learn to feel their way. As a rule, 
brooks vary greatly in depth, and nothing is 
so unpleasant as to find one's self suddenly 
immersed over the tops of one's waders. Then 
again, the beds of some brot^ks are littered 
with loose stones of all sizes, lying at every 
conceivable angle. To put one's lieel care- 
lessly upon a slippery, slanting stone, and 
then quietly sit down in several feet of water 
is provoking to say the least. And yet tliese 
things do ha])pen. Therefore it behooves the 
angler to feel his way cautiously when ex- 
ploring new streams and even upon a famil- 
iar brook at the first outing, for winter fluods 
ha\c a way of playing tricks with flic old 
bed, often displacing large rocks, and i^coop- 
ing out un.-een hollows. 

All these little difficulties ackl but a zest 
to tiie sport. There is such a large measure 
of satisfaction in enticing a decent fish from 
his home \mder the root entwined bank and 
compelling him to enter the small net, that 

a beauty he ia! How brilliant his red spots, 
land how comely his form !. The first troi^t of 

the season is ever so. 

And aU this awaits the %ft^leiP in the glad 

■^•.',.'dllt'--?q^i, when the yelloAv daffodil .be- 
rs the woofil.-iiul floor with gold, and

*30!^ia3|3iil?Government, \vhose duty it is to 
repleni'^li the Canadian rivers with the com- 
mercial varieties of fish, come some interest- 
ing facts concerning fish-hatching. The work 
is carriefl out by a series of points on the At- 
lantic and Pacific coasts and on the Great 

The large -I "\ these — indeed, it is said lo 
be the largest ui its kind in the world — is tlie 
hatchery, at Harrison Lake, drained by the 
Fraser River in British . "Columbia, which 
deals exclusively Hvith the hatching of .salmon 
There are always 10,000,000 fish in the build- 
ing— 7,OGO>ooo socke^^e salmon eggs and fry 
(the fish principally used for canning pur- 
poses) and 3,000,000 spring salmon. 

The building contains i6o hatching 
troughs, each averaging 90.000 fish. During 
September and October the eggs of the fe- 
^s^^0ii-'c)iptrcsicd into a -pan and the •fertil- 
izing '**niilt'' of the male thoroughly mixed 
with them. The eggs are theii carried to the 
hateherv and placed in troughs set in flow- 
ing water. ^ , 

When ready to be liberated the fish arc 
placfsd in a specially constructed semi-sub- 
merged boat. This is towed to a chosen spot 
and when in proper position is allowed to 
sink* below the water.

A Unique Fish Story 
Having read and heard a great many fish 
stories of how it is always the biggest fish 
that gets away, reminds me of a unicpie ex- 
perience which happened to a friend of mine. 
I venture to say that it has never fallen to 
the lot of any of fishermen readers ir, 
hook a big fellow under similar comlilions 
and then lose him. 

In the latter part of June, 1889, the order 
came to get the wrecking outfit and crew 
ready to leave as soon as possilile for Sandy 
Islands at the mouth of Batchawaring Bay, 
on the north shore of Lake Superior, where 
a vessel loaded with iron ore had gone ashore 
the night before. We were not long in get- 
ting the crew together and all hands turned 
to and soon had the steam [uimps. diving out- 
fit, and camp supplies, loaded on the lighter, 
anct that afternoon saw us on our way up the 
Soo River, Just before dark we put into 
\Vhitefish Point, where we tied up for the 

Bright and early the next morning wc 
made another start, and after an nncVcntful 
trip arrived at our destination, and found the. 
vessel Iving easilv and nearlv on an even 
keel. After finding a place to land wc un- 
loaded our camping outfit, and soon had rhe 
tents up and everything mache ship-shape 
While the cook was prei)aring dinner we took 
a walk over to have a look at the wreck, and 
found that although she was pretty well out 
forward she was apparently uninjured. Her 
spars and rigging were all standing. On re- 
moving the hatches we found she was iiretty 
well filled with water, and so after dinner wc 
])ut the dress on the diver and sent him down 
to see if he co/ild locate the leak. There was 
about fifteen feet of water at her stern, and 
as it was as clear as crystal we could see the 
diver's every movement as he poked around 
searching for the leak. After he had put in 
about two hours looking around he signalled 

What latter who had alsp i5^<fti it straightened" him- 
self and watched the ifeh. -It eapi« on" until 
aeaccely a ioot separated it iw»» tl^ !i4M^ 
piece of the diving dress, and then stoppcj|\, 
as if "wondering what .kui^d o f . coni|>anv i t hsm^k 

crowd, aiid witli ffie*Wi®^ef#f8¥v'W 
Avork on the air puuip all gathered round 
wau-hiiiL; 111c unii'sual sight. C)ne of the crew 
a Scotchnian. said "l^or. inon, I didna ken ye 
had sharks in Lake Superior," The fish from 
its si/.e' might well have been taken for a 
shark. The diver stretched out his hand and 
tickled the fish under the belly, but whether 
the fish enjoyed it or not we could not say. 
though it remained perfectly still with the ex- 
ception of a slight motion of its fins. After 
remaining for nearly twenty ininutes it mov- 
pd slowly off in the direction from which it 
had- come, and shortly after the diver came up 
to say he had found the leak. .\- soon as we 
got the head piJSiSl^liH him we started in to 

tching the fish for our 
dinner. "Go on !" he .said. "You fellows 

joke him about 

don't know what you arc talking about. I 
hj^ve seen a good many sturgeons in my day 
but that fellow was the Grand-father of them 
all. Great Scott! but he was a monster and 
I Avould just like to have him out here so you 
fellows could see him." 

All iiands turned 9|^|iil|||R^<^ ^"^ were 
soon hard at work gemif^^^tit. This Avas 
a slow, tedious job, as each piece had to be 
lifted and put in theibucket by hand, and^v|^ 
thffjalMWj:l|BW.LrecI henuitite it Avas not long tffi^''' 
tiri^^iiiSiPe crew^ v^;ere ])ainted like. Indians. 
After the day's work all hands Avere ready to 
retire early. 

Next day we sent the diver down again 
to see if he could get at the broken plank 
Avhich had caused the leak. At about the 
same hour along came his visitqr again, aiivl 
after .staying for .some time moved off in the 
JgMNt <lirection as the previous day. 
'vf.'-^Day after day for nearly a week the same 
thing occurred, until we dubbed the fish ''the 
Inspector." On Sunday we knocked off work 
and spent llu- dnv cMiibing the beach of the 
Islands for ;iu;:i'' - At dinner when we were 
all together we talked over the work of the 
past week, and wondered if Mr, Sturgeon 
would show up again. The diver said that 
if he did he Avould get him if he bad to blow 
him up w-ith dynamite. If he had a good 
stout gaff hook he would jirefer to hook him. 
The Engineer, who was our blacksmith, 
saifl he wouFil try and make one the next day 
if he could find a piece of steel among his 
store.s_./ On looking them over in the morn- 
ing aTl he could find was a piece of half inch 
round iron which he made into a good ser- 
viceable looking hook with a good heavy 
barb to prevent the fish getting off when 
hooked, lie bolted the shank to a piece of 
oak about two feet six inches long, and an 
inch and a quarter square, bored a hole 
through near the end. to which he made fast 
a half inch line. 

.\t about his usual time of calling around 
came Mr. Sturgeon. On Tuesday morning 
the diver took down the gaff hook, but there 
was nothing doing as the old fellow never 
showed up. The peculiar thing about hi>; 
visits Avas that he never came around in the 

On Wednesday morning the diver said he 
would not take the gaff down, but arranged 
a signal with his tender to send it down to 
him in case he needed it. At about the usual 
time of the sturgeon's previous visits, the 
tender, who was sitting quietly smoking his 
pipe, got the signal which caused him to 
lower the gaff in a hurry. All hands were 
called to sec the fun, anti to hoist in the wtur- 
geon when caught. All eyes were turned 
anxiously tu watch the movements of the 
diver, who slo\^y made his way towards the 
gaff, and the, appearing to be fascinated, 
was following him. At last the diver secured 
the gaff and made his way to tiie 'ladder so as 
to be in a position to get out of the way In 
case of emergency, the tender. abortcned MP 

the hose pii)c and life line to prevent the fish 
fouling tlieni after being gaffed. 

Hvervbody was now ready for the climax. 
The diver's hand holding the gaff Avent out 
under the belly of the fish, and with a quick 
(.forward jerk it was sent home. -'The fight 
'was on — a fight that would have tried the 
skill of the great larpon and sea basai'fis^r- • 
man. and taxed the strength of foiir of the 
crcAV, who had grabbed the line as soon as 
the fish was hooked. 

Nothing could be seen of the diver or fish. 
There was nothing visible down there but 
' bubbles, sand and blood. Anyone looking 
down AVQuld have thought that a cyclone was 
at work. Finally it resolved itself into a tug 
of war between the four men and Hie fish. 

The diver released himself from the tur- 
moil and reached the deck. After getting his 
weights, shoes and headpiece off he seated 
himself on the rail to watch the fun. The 
fish had lots of fight in him, and would make 
the line smoke in his rushes for freedom. It 
was a battle royal. One minute victory a])- 
peared to be in favor of the men, and the next 
the fish had gained the advantage. The men 
were working hard to land the fish and the 
I'ish was working hard to get away. 

Suddenly something gave way, and the 
four men Aveiit sprawling on the deck. The 
men picked themselves up, and some of them 
expressed themselves in forcible language at 
losing the fish. The rest hauled up the gaff, 
which, on being landed on deck, Avas found to 
be straightened out as straight as a gun bar- 
rel. This showed the fish was not of the 
small fry order. 

Disappointment wa^i stamped on the faces 
of all. as we had all been longing for a feed 
of sturgeon steak wdiich is not a bad decoc- 
tion wmcn properly cooked. The diver was 
the most disappointed of the lot. He had 
had the novel experience of hooking the fish 
while under water and then losing it. He ex- 
pressed himself as sorry that he had not u.scd 
the dynamite for then he Avould liave been 
sure of it. Now it would die and nvjbody get 
the benefit of it. .The diver said it was the 
largest sturgeon he had ever seen. 

During the rest of our stay at the Island 
wc kept a good look out to see if it would 
come ashore, but never saw any moft.llljfl^^ 
fish.— Rod and Gun.

tar the galley. And Ju.ii as ho was 
Kitting the men into »hapt, the pirate 
t'rlgatu took him unawares. 

Two handred years a.Ko the waters of 
♦he West Indies awarined with pirates, 
and Bob knew about them oJi much as 
any other honest aallor. But when ^.». 
saw the Spanish uiau-of-war frigate 
with thlrty-Hlx guns, the Santiago, 
bearing down on him. he naturally 
thought she was a friendly ship. , 

But, as a matter of fact, a rascally 
pirate li&nti; of two hundrtnl men luid 
stolon h»^r out of Puerto Bfllo Harbour 
and now they were seeking for a loader 
who knew moie about navigation than 
tliKy did. After a Bliorl, Herce fight. 
Bob had been compelled to surrender. 
All his negroes had been forced to Join 
tlm plralts, and Bob was now maroon • 
ed because l.u wouldn't become captain 
of the wicked gang. 

All that blazing afternoon thf^ frig- 
ate and galley did not stir from tlie 
«pot at which they were anchored. Bob 
wandertd on the other side of the Is- 
land; and there, stretching hluiHelf 
sideways upon an outcropping rock, ho 
rubbed and rubbed till he wore a hole 
In his shIrt-Kleeve, and so frayed tlie 
rope binding his arms that he could 
break it, Wadim|i,J?4||.;; , the water,

the sbore, e^q; frbjhib tb^ sblps were an- 
chored. Wild abtiivtB and broken noises 
and snatches of songs came along the 
stilt, purple air from the pirate frig- 
ate^ and a broad band of moonlight fall 
on tLe water. As- Sob was staring at 
the lane of rippling light in a vacant, 
sorrowful way. wondering if he would 
get off the island alive, he saw a curl- 
ous. black, round patch among tb« 
moonlit waves. 

"Massa Bob; Massa Bob; Is you 

The whisper came, low but dlstinat. 

across the shining sea. Bob know the 
voice, and he stood up full length In 
the moonlight so that he could be »<-en. 
in a few atconds a dripping, half- 
laughing, ha.f-crylng negro sprang out 
of the wavcij, and Bob ran up to hlnr. 
and helped hlni ashore. 

"Why, Hambo," he said, whatever 
brings you hcreT* 

"If you'se goin' to die, Massa Bob, 
I'se goln' to dii> with you," said Sambo. 
"Dem pirates has got at our rum, an' 
dey art wild wid de drink. I fear dcy 
will murder all us poor niggers." 

"I forgot luii about liie liiiii," vT>£3 
Bob. "Are our men drinking it aa well, 
Sambo?" The Negro shook his head. 

Old Mr. Saunder» had been very care- 
ful about the training of his plantation 
hauxls. He had given them each at 
.larrfaica a large plot of ground of tl^elr 
own, which WHS to be taken away frC)!)! 
them if ever they were caught drinking 
strong spirits. Bfjb thought of all this, 
and suddenly an idea occurred to htm. 
It looked as though the good deeds of 
his father might now bt. the means of 
saving him from dying of starvation on 
the desert Icland. 

"Have you got enough strength to 
HWlm back to the frigate?" he asked

bench were thirty-nine miserable neg- 
roes, one or two sletplng uneasily, but 
mobl of thorn staring with frightened 
even at thc hoiiile.HM pirates. 

"Go In, Sambo, fiuletly," said Bob, 
"and speak to our men, and see If they 
are all sobtr." 

In crept Sambo and whispered to his 
friends, waking up those who had fall- 
en asleep. The tcachins of old Mr, 
Saunders had borne good fruit, and 
every one of the negroes was tlrtd and 
frightened, but sober. Bob told th^m 
not to move till he returned. Up he 
rlainhered on the eleck, with a knlft be-

nearest rigging, he came back with a 
armful of rope. Sambo followed him 
with a stUi larger bundle.

The Cliau^lere river in the province 
(if Quebec has overflowed Its banks. It 
:.<5 said that the maple sugar crop with 
the outfit for making it has been de- 
stroyed and that tlie loss will be $300,- 
000. If this Is correct many poor 
people will feci thc loss, for this work

when it la greatly needed, at the close 
of a long winter j,nd before the spring 
work comes on. 

The accident which caused tbe death 
of Mr. Hunter, who was caught la th« 
machln«ry of the cement mljcer, was a 
terrible thing. Death Is always sad, 
but when it snatches away the father 
of a family .who left home In the. 
morning In good health and spirits It 
is very hard for those who are left to 
bear their sorrow. The city Is taking 
up a collection for the widow aiid or- 
H^lians so sadly bereaved and, no doubt, 
many generous people Will help the 
widow support her little oneti - till they 
are old enough to care for themselves 
and for her.

The greater number of men along 
the line of construction of the Canadian 
Northern Paclilc have returned to work. 
The government has sent the sanitary 
inspoetor to find out all about tlip 
lioiilth conditions of the camps and if 
I here arc any causes for complaint the 
lontraclora must remedy them. Sir 
William McKenzle is on his way west 
and will sec for himself how the men 
are being treated. 

There should be laws passed in 
every country against the carrying of 
fire-arms, except by those who need 
them for the purpose of protecting 
their own lives or those of others. 
Now everyone who bears . a grudge 
against another or who falls Into a 
passion m.Ty, if he or she chooses, buy 
a revolver and shoot him. If the carry- 
ing of murderous weapons were forbid- 
den half thc crimes that shock the 
whole world of newspaper reader» 
would not be committed. There . are 
thousands of old men who have gone 
through tlho world safely and met men 
of all kinds without carrying a weapon.

Have you noticed how the borders of 
"white rock" are covered with bees. 
This little flower, which stays In blos- 
som for ma.iiy weeks every spring. Is 
sometimes called by the pretty "iiame of 
"Maiden Modesty." If It provides honey 
for thc bees more of us might spread 
a feast for them for there is no pret- 
tier border plant for the early sjiiing 
nor any that will grow wit'h so little 
trouble. The government Is sending a 
number of gentlemen through the prov- 
ince tn give people advice about the 
keeping of bees and to try to check the 
spread of disease among thom. Bee- 
keeping Is very lnter<rsting work and. 
In some places, It Is found to bo as 
profitable as It 's Interesting.

All the week the Story Of the. Titanic 
has been In the papers and It, 1? only 
for the purpose of giving a short ac- 
count that can be aasiiy remembered 

that this paragraph will be writen. On 
April 10th, 1912, the great White Star 
liner Tiutiic lef t . Soutbampton -^th 
81,840 Bouls on board. Most , of : you 
have "teen.., the En^preflHeg- ■ .WlH JfiML i M jy^ 
the Pacific and Will have to tiSnu^ a 
ship nine times as long as the Empress 
of Japan. This great ship was as 
beatitlfully fitted up as any hotel and 
music and many other ways of enjoy- 
mebt werre provided .Ifor the passengers. 
It wan nearly midnight oh ; Sunday 
when the great Ship, speedlnjgr through 
the ocean at about twenty-six miles an 
hour (21 1-2 knots) struck an iceberg. 
The jar was slight and only the captain 
and officers and crew knew that the 
great liner had received her deathblow. 
The Titanic was flUlng with water. The 
passengers were told to put on their 
lifebelts and the women and children 
were ordered on deck. Captain Smith 
called to his men the message "Rf? 
British. My -Men," and ordered the 
lifeboats to be lowered and filled with 
women and children. Quietly and as 
swiftly- as pcsalble the command was 
obeyed. From every part of the ship 
the lifeboats Were filled and It was only 
when no woman waa lefi : li a man 
was allowed to take hl.-^ n any 

of the boats. All the time the band 
played and this helped ta prevent panic. 
No one has Jieard that one of this lit tlo 
band of heroes was saved. As the .njito 
sank tho strains of "Nearer' My God to 
Thee" gave comfort anil strength to a 
thousand dying men and reminded thii 
shivering women In the boats that their 
loved ones were still In their Fathers 
keeping. Even yet no one knows 
how iimny were lost, but the number 
has been placed at 1635. Tho save(I 
numbered 705, not half the number of 
the lost. There were no bonts to tako 
the rest and the Carpathla, rushing to 
the rescue was unable to reach thf* 
spot till 4 o'clock Monday morning. 
The Titanic wont down at 2.10, an hour 
and twenty minutes before. .Amoni; 
the lost were Chas. M. Hays, tluj presi- 
dent of tho Grand Trnnk Pacific itall- 
way company; W. T. Stead., the great 
Knglish journalist, editor of the Uevlc.v 
of Reviews; Isidor Strauss, the New 
York philanthropist and mlIllonnire; 
Benjamin Guggenheim, another of th" 
richest men of the continent. .1. Bruc ! 
Ismay, managing director of the Whit" 
.Star company. Is among the saved. 
Many cruel things have beon said of 
tho men who are living, hut the strict- 
est cro.«>s-exnmlTiati'in has failed to 
^liow that one of thorn took a woman'." 
place or tried to o\erlond a lirnhoa!. 
The officers ami meniliers of the crew 
went <in the boats In obedience tb 'or-.

"Well, my little captain," said 
tall pirate standing with a ,?un in 
hand in the bows of the boat, "yo\t 
made a good fight of it In that galley 
of youra, and you've got yourself tu 
blame for being marooned in this way. 
This is the third time I'll ask ye, and 
the last time. You're a right down 
spirited lad you are, and if you'll join 
US we'll make you our leader, and give 
yOu a tenth of everything we take." 

:I*O0r Bob Sauntlorii sat In the hows 
Of the rowing boat, his arm.s tied to 
his sides with ropes, his shirt open at 
the throat, and his skin scorching un- 
der the tropical sun. Right In front 
of him was the low, palm-f ringed des- 
ert Island to which 'he w«.? being row- 
ed. Beside him stood the leader of the 
pirates, a gun In his hand, and a fiask 
of powder, some shot, and a cask of 
Water at his feet. 

"Mind you, boy," continued the pir- 
ate, thrusting the gun In Bob's face, 
"this gun, a cask of water, and a little 
powder and shot are all we'll give yo 
when we put you on the Island. If 
only we had a man as knows as much 
about navigation as you wc might let 
you off easy. But now wc can't af- 
ford it. Either you come with us, or 
Wo leave you on this desert island." 

sun Bob .saj; sUent, and resolute, hla 
eyes fixed on the palm-trees In front of 
him. The boat ran on the shingle, and 
two of the rowers sprang out into the 
water and lifted Bob up bodily, and set 
him on the beach, and put beside him 
the cask of yater, a fiask of gunpow- 
der, and ab&g of bullets. They got 
back Into the boat, and the pirate bent 
over the hows, and said again: 

"This is the very last chance I'll 
give ye. Bob Saunders. You wounded 
me here" — he touched, as he spoke, the 
side of his head that was bound up in 
a white handkerchief — "you've cut my 
skull to the bone with that little sword 
of yours, but I don't bear you malice, 
for it was in fair fight. B« our cap- 
tain, and we'll give yc one sixth of all 
wo have, and ono sixth of all we get." 
■'I'd rather starve!" said Bob. 
Then the pirate lost his temper. Af- 
ter calling the boy every name he 
could lay hold of, he levelled a pistol 
at him. But one of the rowers — a ne- 
gro — leaiit up and gripped him by the 

"You hurt Massa Bob," ho said, "and 
none of us will come with ye." 

"Tho boy's a fool," said tht pirate 
gruffly. "I've offered him a fortune," 

But he lowered the pistol, and row- 
oid back, sullen and silent, to the big 
three-masted Spanish frigate, on the 
poop deck of which floattd a black flag 
with a skull and cross bones painted 
on It. Close to the pirate ship was a 
small galley, with no sign of life on it, 
ond mflrlcs of cannon balls on its huH 
and deck. 

Standing on the beach, his arms still 
roped to Ills body. Bob Saunders looked 
long and sadly at the galley, and his 
eyes filled with ttars. Only a w)ocl<j 
aeo his father — a Jamaica planter — 
had bought the galley. Just as sIik lay 
in Kingston Imrbour, and mannoil her 
with forty negrtips from his plantation, 
.ind set Mill for Oo.'.-ton with a cargo 
of rum iind sugar. Bob, his ynungo.«:t 
.son, had come will, him to navigate the 
galley — a two-masted ship ustd In tii* 
coast trade — and mightily proud did 
Bob foel, for It was his first command 
fl»» had been to sea for three years, and 
rlHon 1 the iige of elghtoon to the rank 
of stcond male on a merchantman. 

"You shall be my captHin, Bob." his 
father hsil snld, "and I will see to tho 
soiling of the cargo when we reach 
Boston, I've' boi-n feeling unWell late- 
ly, and the voyage will do mt: good, t 
don't «oo why I should pay high ratos 
for sending my sugar to New Kngland 
when X'V(» o sailor son thnt .can man- 
ago n boat hotter than most." 

(Tn happily, old Mr. Saunders had been 
more unwell than he thought, an<1 two 
days after Sfctflng sail from Kingston 
hn died. Bob then had to manage the 
npgroes— who knew little or nothing

By the "Way 

In a new volume of the Boy Scout 
Librar.v, entitled "Tracking," there Is a 
page of Illustrations of the various 
tracks left by different makes of auto- 
mobile tyres. The value of a know- 
ledge of these tracks Is evident, as any 
detoctlvo will toll you. Of course. It 
is probable that the makes most fra- 
quoiitly met with In Kngland would not 
bo the same as those we see here; it 
would, however, be a simple matter 
for any scout in town to find out tho 
names and draw a picture of the tracks 
Of eight or nine at least different 
makes of tyres used In Victoria. 

While we are on the subject of track- 
ing. I should like to make a suggestion 
to the musoum authorities. When tho.v 
are setting up any B. C. animal, or 
group of unlmalH, could they not also 
roproduco beside It a picture or Imita- 
tion of its tracks? U could b^ mado 
in artificial snow, or simply drawn full 
si'/.o on a sheet of card. It would add 
very much to the uscfulneBs and com- 
pleteness of the museum of which the 
city Is already proud. 

The executive committee give notice 
that they have now tb» ninth form o^ 
the second-class badges in stock, and 
no more metal badges will bo furr.'.abed 
except' the few that remain. Next 
month's S.-M.'s who wish Uor th-e metal 
badge and ask for It can have them «s 
far «<; they will go. Thc ^*ew badge Is 
of khaki ploth, with tl>e design in red

A rolk story Told to Me by My Clr»nd- 
(By Helen K. Griffin) 
Once upon a time there was a little 
girl named Ticklin. who lived with a 
mean old woman who made her work 
from daylight till dark. One day Tick- 
lin was carrying a bucket of water and 
spilled a little on the floor. When the 
old woman saw It sihe was so angry 
that sho took Ticklin and sewed her up 
in a bag. and told her she was going 
to give her an awful beating. Then she 
went off to the woods to get the 
Hwilclics. ' 

When she had feone Ticklin cried and 
cried: then she put her hand in her 
pocket to get her handkerchief, when 
what should she find but a penknife! 
So she cut tlie bag open and jumped 
out. Then she ran and got all the old 
woman's chickens and all the old wom- 
an's ducks and all the old woman's tur- 
keys and silver and glass and put them 
in the bag In place of herself, sewed it 
up and went out and climbed up in the 
branches of a tree. 

It was not long before back came the 
old woman hobbling up the road u Ith a 
big bundle of switches under her arm. 
Ticklin saw her go straight into the 
house to Where she had left thc bag, 
an<i taking a switch from her bundle, 
say, "Oh, yes, Ticklin, I'm going' to 
teach you not to «plll water on my ra« ^ 
carpet again." and with that, bang went 
thc switch on tho bag! 

"Cackle cackle, i-acklel" went tho 
heus, and the old woman irSed, "t 
know your tricks, Ticklin; you needn't 
try to cackle like my hens!" and down 
.she came again with her switch. 
"Quack! quack: quack" wont the ducks. 
"1 know your trlck.'j, Ticklin; you need- 
n't try to go like my ducks!" cried the 
old woman, and bang went her switch 

"Gobble, gobble, gobble, gobble, gob- 
ble, gobble!" went the turkeys. •'Tou 
needn't try to go like my turkeys!" 
cried tho old woman, and bang went 
her switch again. This time tho all- 
vor railed and the glass cracked, which 
sounded like Ticklln's bones, and when 
Uie old woman heard It she thought 
she had punished Ticklin enough, ao 
she ripped open the bag and dUmpsA 
everything out on the floor. 'When to 
her dismay. Instead of Tlc*lln, there 
she saw all of her chlckena! And alt of 
her diKlis: And all of i\tT turk«gn»! 
And all of her silver! And all of bar 
glass! And right straight ah* «ta««* 
out to find Ticklin. 

But before this Ticklin had eMloMMdl 
dowii from the tree, and, getti^tg "laia 
a boat, had rowed acrosa the ylver. 

The old woman saw her on tb* ot|»r 
side and called to ber. "Ob, Ti«ktto*

A great deal of discussion has gone on of

is a subject thai ii, always to tlic fure. Some 
liave it that in these days it is a lost art, stifl- 
ed by bridge, or rendered impossible by the 
general hurry-scurry and impatience of the 
period. It has remained for one of the most 
distinguished conversationalists of the age to 
make a remark apropos of the topic, so preg- 
nant, so brilliant and so true that it is worth 
a moment's pause to analyze and consider:

The time when Badminton was looked on 
with contempt as a version of the old battle- 
dorc-and-shuttlecock, with the wild hitting and 
unconsidered tactics that distinguished tlie di- 
version is now long past. The game of Bad-

Thc dark and dreary days of wintry storm, 
when even the most enthusiastic of golf and 
hockey players find themselves debarred from 
their favorite pastime, have no terrors for the 
followers of liadminton. Jn the room or hall 
where sufficient space for the small courts is 
to be found, and \\>iih artificial light, if ncces- 
sar} , the players are not disturbed l)y what is 
going on outside, and the afternoons and e\ - 
enings of autumn and winter can be spent in 
healthy, vigorous exercise, with the interest of 
improving their style of play, or the keener 
excitement of matching their skill against that 
of their fellows that keeps both mental and

A Few Cookery Hints — Potatoes 

With regard to potatoes, one of the "little 
things" which the economical housewife 
should Ijcar in their minds is that' potatoes 
baked in their jackets are an enormous aid to 
an "elegant economy," because with boiled po- 
tatoes quite a quarter of a pound <>f "peelings" 
goes to the pound, whereas with baked there 
is absolutely no waste at all. and the exact 
number of potatoes required can also be guag- 
ed to a nicety, thus avoiding all "left-overs." 
Of course large potatoes should be chosen, but 
I have always found my own green grocer 
most obliging on this point, and "half a' bushel 
of large potatoes only'' always brings the de- 
sired article. 

Here again might be mentioned a "'little 
thing" which will certainly make both for 
economy and appetite in connection with 
mashed potatoes. Who that has tasted the de- 
licious French variant of this dish can truth- 
fully say that he prefers the crude English 

For puree of potatoes, then, in the French 
fashion, allow a wineglassfnl of absolutely 
boiling milk for every [Kiund of freshly boiled 
potatoes. If you have to study economy very 
strictly, use half milk and half boiling water 
takitig the latter from that in which the pota- 
toes were boiled. Add the milk, letting it first 
boil, with a tiny fragment of inace, then add 
it to the potatoes with a lump of butter about 
the size of a walnut for every pound of pota- 
toes. Beat it up till quite white and light, add 
pepper and salt to taste, and send to table boil- 
ing hot, for half cold mashed potatoes are an 
abomination alike to the eye and the palate. 
Mashed potatoes, to be served with roast fowl 
should be prepared thus : Put the fowl giblets 
in a saucepan with a bouquet garni, a tiny 
blade of mace, an onion (notched, to let the 
juice escape,, and stuck with a clove). ^ Add 
enough water to well cover them, and slimmer-, 
gentli^ till you get a good strong gravy- 
roughly about an hour and a half — but

■•.i^»M,i2TJ£iPhe Pudding Course 

If "you' nave once tried an apple tart made 
with fruit prepared in the following way, it is 
I think safe to say you will never be satisfied 
with the old order of things again, for this is 
indeed one of the most important little things 
which make a very big difference indeed. Well 
wash the apples. Three pounds will make a 
big "family tart," note. Peel and core them. 
Put the peels and cores into a clean saucepan, 
add enough water to cover them, and a couple 
of cloves or a strip of lemon peel. Bring to 
the boil and then simmer slowly for half an 
hour. Strain off the water into a clean stew- 
pan. For three pounds of apples, add to it 
from six to eight ounces of sugar — or more if 
very sweet things are liked — bring gently to 
the boil, let it continue boiling for three or 
four minutes till it thickens slightly, then add 
the sliced apples and simmer slowly until 
cooked. Empty into a pie-dish, and finish the 
tart in the usual way, using puff or short pas- 
try, as desired. 

Again, in making fruit tarts from dried 
fruits — as one so often has to do at this sea- 
son of the year — well wash the fruit in a 
couple of waters, then place it in a deep bowl, 
add sufficient hold water to well cover it, place 
a plate on top, and leave for twenty-four 
hours. Strain off the water into a clean 
saucepan, add the sugar. Boil i\\) till it slight- 
ly thickens, then add the fruit, and finish in 
the ordinary way. This recipe holds good for 
dried fruit of every kind. 

And here is another "little thing!" When 
about to make either "half-pay" or bread pud- 
ding, or currant or sultana dumplings, or cab- 
inet or cottage pudding, always submit the 
fruit to a preliminary soaking; the gain to 
the pudding is enormous. Thus well wash 
sultanas in cold water, place them in a dee]> 
bowl, and pour over them .sufficient boiling 
water to well cover them. Then leave for at 
least twelve hours. The fruit will be swollen 
to quite twice its usual size, it will be abso- 
lutely clean, and it can be stalked far more 
easily than bv the old rough-and-ready meth- 

, Yet another "little thing" well worth re- 
membering! Sultanas or currants make a de- 
licious compote quite by themselves if ])re- 
pared as follows: Wash and soak as directed 
above, strain off the water into a clean sauce- 
pan. Add four ounces of sugar for each half 
pint of water and a wineglassfnl of rum or 
sherry. Bring to the boil, and when it thick- 
ens slightly, add the fruit, and simmer gently 
for twenty minutes. Serve very hot with 
cream ur custard handed separately. 

When for grown-ups, the custard can be 
enormously improved if. when making it, it 
is made as follows, and a wineglassfnl of milk 
substracted, a wineglassfnl of either rum or 
sherry or ginger syrup being aded in its place 
Beat up a large egg in half a pint of milk, add 
to it sifted sugar to taste. Place in a 4^Pr j

Frederick Voelker— At the Empress Theatre This Week 

Amusing Scene from "The Faun" -Victoria Theatre. Monday, April 29 

May Robson's new comedy, based 
upon the question of hereditary 
influence and the adventures of 
an elderly woman, who assumes 
the direction of her two grand- 
.sons. who arc intensely interested 
in the kaleidoscope of the' ever- 
changing \ mayemcnts . _ of the 
"Great White Way" as seen on 
•'A Night Out." Miss Robson's 
naturalness in the portrayal of 
character is as complete and as 
convincing as it is humorous, not 
alone the wholesome endeavors 
nor the cleverness of well ar- 
ranged situations, but upon a Hat- 
ha racter

inoj^t insufferable of critics all 
ab'Hit e(|ually well, wliicli is ]Uit- 
ting it pretty strong, yet ncver- 
th, true. The actors arc them- 
.selves^ScOtch, .md after the first 
icw lines yoif are fille.l wilh the 
comforting assurance that none 
of them will' Forget to nsf The 
proper accent. The fact that ihey 
;ire Scotch accrn^its for their 
names being totally unfamiliar to 
theatre-goers, but it will not be 
long before the cast, which is 
practically all star, will have be- 
come widely .known on this side 
of the big pond. 

The idea is that of a young 

mc-iis system has failed. One 
measurement would show a 
height of 5ft. cjin., and uhcn an- 
other was taken immediately af- 
terward the height would increase 
several inches and the arms would 
be longer. Without apparent ef- 
fort he easily increases his height

clarcs that his back is stronger 
wdicn elongated. Tests made by 
medical men show that the spinal 
cord straightens, that the verte- 
brae loosens or widens, the cartil- 
ages between the vertebrae be- 
coming more expanded, and the 
joints are also affected as the 
man's height increases from head 

liring the critical audience into in- 
tima~tc relation and complete un- 
derstanding almost from the rise 
of the cuttain. 

Virgil Holmes and Marjonc 
Rilcvfa protege of Andrew Car- 
nei'ie. wh.. will again favor Em- 
press patrons with their splcinlid 
voices, appeared at the local Em- 
press a little (ncr a year ago and 
made so good that they were 
given another contract. Mr. 
Holmes possesses a plea.sing and 
rangv baritone voice, while Aliss 
Riley has a lyric soprano of un- 
n-iial hdllianfc. . 

One of the biggest "Rube 
lauuhs in vaudeville is Roach and

Youth is having hs fhn^ ^-n tnc 
sia<rc todav. About half of the 
nhi'v. thai ha\e been successes in 
the last five or six years have 
given it prcmiinent roles. The de- 
mand for verv younj^ playci-s 
oreated'bv the work of ihe dram- 
Hlists of the day has had its etfcct 
in bringing a crop ot y>ni«thful 
aspirants for stage honors to the 
front. Child labor laws and the 
work of the Gerry Society in New 
York have not affected the out- 
put of plays nor of child actors, 
although in many cases they have 
hamperisd the producers of these 

ent day beautiful ingenue, 
was one of the j^retty stage gjrls 
of a few .years ago; Violet Llem- 
ing, who has developed almost 
into a leading woman, and Ursula 
St. George', who is a full-fledged 
star, and who will be seen here in 
"Rel)ccca of Sunnybrook h'arm." 
as the c.xponer.i "f ii- ecnti-;d 
character. Tliese three young 
women hax'c grafluatcd from r()les 
within a season or two. Edith 
and Mabel Taliaferro arc other 
examples of the development of 
child actresses into. women of im- 
portance in the theatrical world. 
Of even younger growth and 
now quite prominent in .'Vmerica 
arc Gladys lluletto ,an English 
girl who was brought over to play 
the principal girl part in Maeter- 
linck's "P>liic Bird"; Mary Miles 
'\Vinlei. who is jn.-i now aston- 
ishing playgoers as the Southern 
girl in Pcple's play. "The Littlest 
Rebel": Gretchcn Hartman, 
whose contention that she was 
part Owner of "Mary Jane's Pa," 
in which she played Mary Jane, 
defeated the action of the labor 
law in Chicago .some years ago 
and brought her fame from that, 
as well as for her acting; lRuth 
Findlay, Claiborne Foster, Gladys 
Waddell and I^illian Ross, wlio 
are in the ensemble of "Rel)ecca 
of Sunnybrook Farm," giving life 
and color to its scenes of girl- 
hood. The wave of youth has not 
confined itself to this side of the 
.\tlantic, for in London just" now 
very yotsthftrt Wort ert' are in the 
first rank among, the players 
there, PhylHs and Ztat Dare, 

possessor of a vorce^lfiat is nftely 
to prov,|S;;,,,a.-i!ortunc — a wonderful 
voice; '^^m^derful and of such 
power that it hardly seems pos- 
sible that it can issue from so 
young a throat. 

So far Marjorie Dennis has 
hardly sung here in public at all 
and little has been .said of the new.,^.^- 
prodigy. A few month.s ago a ^«^*fi4F'' 
vored few heard her at the studio 
of her teacher, Atherton Furlong, 
and a day or two before her de- 
parture for Canada, she had a 
small and select audition at the 
Bechstcin Hall. Anly a few peo- 
ple were invited and only a very 
few had any idea of the marvel 
thatAvas to be displayed for their 

They saw a pfetty dark haired 
child in very short skirts, who, at 
a word from her master, went on 
to the platform and, without a 
trace of shyness,' faced her little 

■AVhat will you sing, ^lar- 
jorie?" asked Mr. Furlong. "I 
don'tmind," saicf Marjorie cheer- 
fully. (.It- is credibly reported 
that Miss Dennis can sing already 
in three languages, and she is cer- 
tainlv quite at home in two.) So 
IMirjorie elected to sing that song 
which is the heritage of everv 
prmia donna, the "Jewel Song" 
from "Faust." To say that the 
small and select audience was sur- 
prised is to put it mildly. Here 
was a child with the voice of a 
grow-n woman — a voice that its 
owner seem to produce without 
the slightest effort. Put into bald 
language, ^farjorie Dennis' voice 
is a soprano, with a range extend- 
ing from F to A. But that con- 
veys nothing of its beauty and 
feeling orof \ihai was ..jpspecially 
amazing — the i)owcr bver the 
lower notes. 

Then the little singer, without 
a hint of nervousness, gave othrs' 
selections from a repertoire the 
extent of which would not dis- 
grace an artist of twice her age. 

'J'ha btory of the discovery of 
Marjorie his about it a sniack of 
romance. Her sister, who is i^ow 
in Mr. Ilammerstein's opera com- 
panv here, was trained by Mr. 
Furlong. One day, when she 
went for her lesson ,she took Mar- 
jorie with her. At the end of the 
lesson Mr, Furlong asked, caSual- 
Iv enough, "Does your sister 
sing?" "Oh, she has a nice little 
voice," was the answer, and to ^ 
show the "nice little voice," Mar- 
jorie sang one or two little things < 
she had"picked up from her sister. 
That was enough. The master^' 
recognized a vortc among a thoi\-'^ 
sand. It was not in her sawaBBts^ 
scheme of tilings thiit Matjoirie. 
us well as her sister, shoutd htve 
her voice trained. Ifldf^edf they 
liad not realized that slie ^^M a" 
voice. But this was t<o case lor 
objections- or talk <}i bttftise*^. - 
Mr. Furlong, for very love of his 
art, wotold have the tratiiiitg of 
Marjorie Dennis in his Hands ;^a^ 
Iww well he has done .^»*gf 
was made very plain to

IT is because they cannot rim-cut that No-Rim-Cut Tires 
have made such great sales records. 

800,000 have been sold— sold to the shrewdest class 
of buyers. Get the number right— 800,000— enough to 
equip 200,000 Cars and not one has been ruined by rim- 

The diagram shows why. 

No-Rim-Cut Tires are held in place by the round surface 
of the side ring. 

^, Ordinary tires must be held by a hook-shaped ring 
with the sharp edge of the ring next to the tire. The con- 
stant rubbing of this sharp edge of the ring cuts the tire and in 
case of puncture ruins the tire in a few moments. 

No-Rim-Cut Tires 

10% Oversize 

These tires which can't rim-cut are 10% larffer than 
ordinary tires— have 10% more resiliency— save un- 
necessary vibration. 

They "have 10% more carrying capacity — provide for 
overloading. They add, with the average car, 25% 
more tire mileage.

The Tudhope Factory Answers 
the Low Price Question 

UDHOPE Cars are sold in 
Canada for the same price as 
they could command in the 
United States. 

The Tudhope Factory— its 
size and its equipment — makes 
this possible. 

Building so many cars we reduce to the 
lowest the cost of materials. Using the most 
modern factory equipment we eliminate waste 
of materials and loss of time. 

Tudhope Cars are manufactured at as low 
cost as any cars made in the United States. 
We do not have to add the 35 per tent, duty 
OR ANY PART OF IT to the selling price. 

That is why Tudhope Cars are sold at from 
$500 to $700 less than other cars of the same 
standard. That is why the Canadian buyer 
gets bigger value in a Tudhope Car. 

A Tudhope "Four" that sells for $1,750 has 
high-grade features and special equipment not 
found in cars sold at $2,300 or more. 

Compare a Tudhope with other cars and 
see the truth of this. Here arc a few facts 
about the Tudhope Car : 

The lonj-stroke motor has cylinders and water-jacket 
cast en bloc. It is equipped with the Bosch Dual High- 
Tension Ignition System. 

Carefully tested channel-section pressed-steel is used in 
the frame, which is made with a double drop to lower the 
weight-centre of the car without reducing the road clearance. 
This lessens swaying and the possibility of skidding or 
upsetting, making for comfort and safety^ 

ass ro»T •TmxiXT, vzcto^xa, b. c. 


Chrome nickel-steel is used in the transmission gears and 
rear axles, and these together with the differential are en- 
closed in a dust-proof housing. 

The high wheels are of the heavy artillery type. The 
tires are extra large, reducing tire-wear. Continental 
Demountable Rims are used. 

Comfort is provided in a large measure. The long wheel- 
base, high wheels and large tires bridge irregularities in 
rough roads, and large springs and shock-absorbers prevent 
jolting and bouncing. 

The wide bodies have full sides and a straight-line top.

If you arc a rcmilar nicniljcr or atlemlant of suiue church 
wliose slatciiieiit of Belief you can conscientiously accept, this 
notice is not for ynu, it is intended only for ilic lar^e and in- 
creasinj^f number of serious and ihnu^lilful men and women 
who have no church home. 

The Church Of The 
Open Mind 

Our Supreme Aspiration 

We strive to rc|>rescnt and embody in personal character 
and civic institution the New Christianity wdiich is rising all 
abciut us. and which is but the original, simple, but mighty 
Gospel of Jesus. 

A Christianity which puts charactcr-lhiildnig above cieed 
makingf, deeds of love above 4Qp0iW»,prw*|lth}.S|ryifie. above 
sucranicnt; and obedience^ 101^^^^:.-.^^ i" 

7^^ ^ng^ilpity whH^ makes the Golden Rule central; 

V%hiph4j|«i&^he Sertt^ on the Mount rather than tiie N«cen* 

Cr^^|{^ the Chart of Life: which appeals to love instead of 

v|)Ei||i|j|*.^p which encourages growth and dincovery rather 

tSlnNc^iiformity of opinion. 

:.' 4|4^ Christianity which pleads for brotherhood and co-ofTcra- 
ftOtS,;" which insists upon freedom, and which uses the Liblc 
hiot to make a creed, but to enrich the life. . . 

Perhaps you thought that the Unitarian Movement "meant 
denying something." We deny nothing; we try to keep our 
hearts an<l minds open to all truth from whatever source it 
may come. Many of us in the past, after leaving the ranks of 
orthodoxy, wandered far before learning that the Unitarian 
Movement offered us the freedom of thought for which we 
Were seeking. It came as a revelation — it was so different to
